Creating blog posts offline


Has anybody found an alternative way to create blog posts offline, other than Livewriter?

I've been using Livewriter exclusively for several years, and I love it, but I just got a new laptop, and it is Windows 10, which does not appear to be supported by Livewriter. I tried downloading it, and it failed. I don't mind using Blogger directly (although it is not nearly as easy to use as Livewriter), but I feel like it eats up a ton of data while I am composing my posts.

If I could find a new way to create a post outside of Blogger, and then just cut & paste it in to publish, I think that would make it much easier for me.

Appreciate any advice from fellow bloggers!

We write ours in microsoft word first, edit a few times then copy and paste online to our blog provider. Once online, I just spend time uploading and putting pictures in. Allows me to blog at any point without having to be online. Seems to work just fine.

I have Windows 10 on my computer, and Livewriter works just fine. The program was already on my computer when I upgraded it to 10 though, so I can't add any information about installing it.

I'm horrible at blogging.  Sadly, I've not posted in quite a while, but we did recently upgrade to Windows 10.  After reading this, I went to Livewriter and clicked to get it started.  I do have Livewriter 2011, and it did come right up.  Now, I'll have to do a post or two to make sure everything works right for me.  Like 2Riker2go, I already had Livewriter installed.

In the past, I've always preferred to compose first in Microsoft Word so that I could have all the editing tools of Word.  (I need all the help I can get.)  Wherever I intended to put an image or link, I'd notate at that spot in the text.  Then, I would copy and paste the text to Livewriter and put in the images and links before posting to the blog host.

Thanks for all the responses! I was thinking that I would try Word, and then cutting and pasting, but I was hoping that I could put the pictures in, too, but based on Cori's response, it sounds like I'll have to add them in blogger. Unfortunately, one of my least favorite tasks in blogger! :)

The number of people who are successfully using Livewriter on Windows 10 gives me hope, though, and as soon as I've got some decent wifi (or if I have a couple gigs of data left over at the end of the month), I'll try downloading it again. Thanks for that link, Bill!
