I started to use Windows Live Writer couple of weeks ago, it comes with Windows Live. One good thing about this writer is that it allows you to add various blog accounts, just like how you can add several email accounts in Windows Live Mail.
However, I encountered a problem when I was trying to publish a blog with photo attached to my blogger.com account. The server will return an Error 403. The problem could be due to Picasa Web Albums (blogger.com, Google, and Picasa are all linked) doesn’t automatically create a specific album to store the pictures during upload.
So, to overcome this problem, simple. Just login to the Picasa Web Albums with your Google ID and create an album titled “Windows Live Writer”, and voila! No more error 403 or whatsoever. Pictures attached in your new blog will automatically store in that album.
