Blogging Without Opening Internet Explorer

As you may already know, there are other ways to blog or post, or whatever you want to call it, without opening up your default web browser. Previously, bloggers had to access their blog site and enter in their username and password in order to add a new entry to their blog site. Now, you have other 3rd party software that you can either download for free or buy over the net that enabled bloggers to create, post, and save their entries without the need to access their blog site.

The ones I constantly use and recommend come from Microsoft. For example, this post I wrote using Microsoft Word 2007. It turns out that Microsoft Office 2007 lets you post to your blog right from Microsoft Word! Just lick the Office button on the top left corner of Microsoft Word, click on "New", select "New blog post", and finally click on the create button. I am pretty sure you will know what to do after that.

The other option you have is downloading Microsoft’s Windows Live Writer. It’s also a free application that is designed specifically for blogging. It has the same look and feel of all Microsoft Office product and it comes with numerous bells and whistles that lets you go crazy over customizing the look of your post.

So choose whatever you are most comfortable with. Personally, I choose blogging from Microsoft Word 2007. I mean, why would I install another application if I already have one that does exactly the same job!

That’s all for now.

Thank God it’s Friday!

It certainly have been an interesting week. I got sick a couple of times. I had to deal with sharepoint permissions and object model. And finally news came to me from egypt that my grandmother is in a bad health condition. But then again those aren’t strong enough reasons for me to whine about.

I haven’t played Guitar Hero since my brothers bought it on Tuesday. There is something about this game that makes me hate it or not want to play it. I just think I might go down to the level of punks and crazy ass rock stars if I played it. And honestly, from the looks of it, it doesn’t look that interesting anyways. But since its here, I might give it a shot. One day.

The weather seems to be getting colder now that it stopped raining. It was pretty wild how the rain melted all the snow that was previously there in a very short period of time. I mean now it doesn’t even look like it ever snowed!

Anyways, I better hit the sack.

My Neck is Killing Me

I seriously need to buy a new, better and healthier pillow. I don’t care how much it will cost me as long as I can have a good night sleep as well as wake up without any neck pains.

Every morning I carry with me this pain to work expecting it to go away after an hour or two. But the problem seems to be more serious than I thought.

Anyway, I am off to bed now. Oh how wonderful it is to know that I will wake up tomorrow with another neck pain. My days just keep on getting better.

My Last Attempt Towards Blogging

I can’t remember how many times I created a blog and shut it down within months. I think either 3 or 4 times now. I even registered multiple domains just for blogging yet still I was unsuccessful in keeping the site active.

So here is my last attempt, I think. I began blogging on Windows Live Spaces before and then left it to open a more blog specific site a couple of times and here I am back again to Windows Live Spaces.

What I will be trying to do is posting every night before I go to bed. And that should be the least I will do. Besides the nightly post, I might post some interesting entries on mobile technology and handsets.

That being said, I will be doing my best to keep my space active whenever possible. And I am not doing this for anyone. It’s just something that I wanted to get into and make it part of my life but without any success so far. But I am not giving up yet.
