I’d never used any of the blog-posting software tools because they never seemed to work with our corporate blog configuration. I assumed there was something wrong with our multi-blog setup, so I didn’t spend much time on the problem.
Then I met Joe, from the Windows Live Writer team, and found out that when you enter your account details, you need to provide the Movable Type API Password, not the password you use to login via the browser. It had never occurred to me that there’d be a different password.
So one more obstacle to frequent blogging is removed; only laziness remains!
