Although focused at Windows Live Spaces, Windows Live Writer 2009 is one of the best tools available for general purpose bloggers.
I myself love it. I admire the new 2009 version even more. As a matter of fact I am an open-source proponent but the convenience of using WLR 2009 is so great that I too had to accommodate it as my primary post creation tool. I was introduced to WLR 2008 by Paul (A fellow Author on this Blog) Now we are both convinced that it is a great productivity tool with a excellent interface and superb features.
