Sorry for my absence. I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 a little while ago and just finally got around to adding my blog tools back.
First Windows Live Writer no longer works on Google Blogger due to security enhancements at Google. MS has not stayed up to date with that enhanced authentication including the Windows 2012 Essentials version. So don’t waste your time instead use “Open Live Writer”
It has a similar look and feel as Windows Live Writer and will connect efficiently with blogger.
