Maybe the needed plug-ins for Windows Live Writer have all been written as there has been a big slow down in what has been submitted to be posted to http://plugins.live.com over the last few months. Since the beginning of 2011 there have three plug-ins added plus an update to an existing plug-in. Since there is not RSS on the site you have to go looking for them but if you do you can find some great plug-ins. Here are the ones added/updated in 2011:
- Twitter Update – this plug-in is a little more extensible than the plug-in published from Microsoft and allows for tweeting to three accounts on post of the blog entry.
- Amazon Book Linker – Do you blog about books? Add your Amazon associate id and if people click through from your blog to buy you will get your commission.
- Source Code Formatter – this is an update to a plug-in that has been available for awhile that allows you to added formatted source code to your blog entry.
- GeSHi Server Blocks – This is another source code highlighter that works with many server side plug-ins for GeSHi.
I hope to see many more plug-ins submitted for Windows Live Writer to the plug-in site. There are many things you can do when you are blogging.
