I use Windows Live Writer to write my blog posts offline, then schedule them to publish in advance. I love Windows Live Writer because it’s so much easier to write posts offline. With Windows Live Writer, I can add/edit images, insert videos, assign categories/tags, select author, modify the permalink, and password-protect a post without being connected to the Internet. 

Windows Live Writer has a keyword field that allows you to add tags to posts, but it’s not enabled by default. Some WordPress theme templates enable the feature in WLW, but some templates do not. This was the case with one of my blogs. I can write posts offline and assign categories, but I cannot add tags. I have to publish the posts first, then go to the WordPress dashboard to add tags. It was kind of annoying, and I didn’t want to install a new theme template. I was searching for a work around solution and found this utility to enable keywords/tags field to WLW. You can download the WriterKeywordsEnable utility to force the tags field to your WLW.

facebook In Facebook, you can import notes from an external blog. I have several blogs that I would like to import to Facebook, but unfortunately, I can only configure the import setting to import from one blog. Which blog do I import notes from? My geeky, but most popular Shanghai Tech Writer blog? My personal/family blog? My health/diet-related blog?

Yahoo! Pipes Well, choose no more. You can use Yahoo! Pipes to combine multiple RSS feeds into one! This online tool uses pipes as an illustrative method to build, combine, customize, and/or funnel feeds from different sources to one output. I used Yahoo! Pipes to combine all my blog RSS feeds into one feed. Now my Facebook friends can read all my blog posts!

How To Build a Pipe Tutorial

Here’s a video tutorial on how to build a pipe in just a few minutes. You can also find some online tutorials on creating various pipes.

Gmail Gmail is undoubtedly the most popular email service out there because it’s free, reliable, easy to use, and offers a huge disk space. Back in the days when Gmail first came out around 2004, all the other free online email services offered a mere 2MB of email space. Gmail offered 2GB, and in addition, adds more space to your account every second.

Who needs 2GB of space anyway? So people stopped deleting emails. I stopped deleting emails. Now my Gmail account has over over 7GB of space and I’ve used up 25% of my space. That’s 1.8GB of emails, useful information, receipts, articles, news, RSS feed, attachments, pictures, files, and junk.

Gmail disk space

I probably don’t need to keep everything, but who cares about deleting emails when we have "unlimited" space? So what happens if Google goes bust one day or their servers crash? Where will all our information be? Those of you that heavily rely on Gmail to manage your life, don’t say you’ve never been warned.

Always back up your hard drive. Always back up your email account!

Check out Gmail Backup. Download this software to your computer and it will back up your Gmail account.
