Yesterday in a blog posting of GWB, I have first heard about Live Writer, by which blog can be posted by a FAT client. I downloaded and it worked fine for my Live.com space. Although found in the mentioned blog posting, using Live Writer, GWB blogs can also be posted, but didn't got any way to post blog in GWB. Today I found Jeff Julian has provided a very nice tutorial about how to use Live Writer to post in GWB. Well I have gone thru all the steps yesterday, that Jeff provided, but got stacked in only one space, where I needed a particular information. In the blog setting wizard there is a space where there is a dropdown to choose the provider. For GWB blog settings we need to provide the following info:

Type of web log: Custom (Metaweblog API)

Remote posting url: http://www.geekswithblogs.net/YOUR_BLOG_NAME/services/metablogapi.aspx

That's it. Now I am using Live Writer and I am sure this post is going to be added to my GWB blog, since you are reading it!
