Just testing the use of Windows Live Writer for blogging.  I have downloaded and installed some plugins for adding code snippets.

The following examples use this plugin:

/// <summary>
        /// Resets the counters.
        /// </summary>
        public void ResetCounts()
        {
            StudentsWithFiles = 0;
            StudentsWithoutFiles = 0;
            TotalSpaceUsed = 0;
            TotalFilesCount = 0;
        }

You can also change the colours and fonts:

/// <summary>
        /// Resets the counters.
        /// </summary>
        public void ResetCounts()
        {
            StudentsWithFiles = 0;
            StudentsWithoutFiles = 0;
            TotalSpaceUsed = 0;
            TotalFilesCount = 0;
        }

The following example was created using the Insert Code plugin:

   1:  /// <summary>
   2:          /// Resets the counters.
   3:          /// </summary>
   4:          public void ResetCounts()
   5:          {
   6:              StudentsWithFiles = 0;
   7:              StudentsWithoutFiles = 0;
   8:              TotalSpaceUsed = 0;
   9:              TotalFilesCount = 0;
  10:          }

This was created purely in the Windows Live Writer software, which then automatically publishes it to your blog.

This text was added after the post was originally published. i.e. editing!

Using the Code Snippet plug-in:

   1: /// <summary>
   2:         /// Resets the counters.
   3:         /// </summary>
   4:         public void ResetCounts()
   5:         {
   6:             StudentsWithFiles = 0;
   7:             StudentsWithoutFiles = 0;
   8:             TotalSpaceUsed = 0;
   9:             TotalFilesCount = 0;
  10:         }

Overall this is a simple and easy way to add blog posts. You can even use it to edit existing posts not made using Windows Live Writer. There are lots of plug-ins to explore too, so why not give this a try.
