Posting to SharePoint with Windows Live Writer.

As you've not doubt already seen, new betas of Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Writer are now available to testers. I'd never used Live Writer before as it did not support my blog but the new Beta supports the SharePoint 2007 blogging platform so I'm going to be giving it a really good crack as my blogging tool of choice. In fact, this post is being written in Live Writer and is coming from our hotel room :)

If you can read this then it's obviously worked ok.

How do you include a tag when posting using Live Writer (this post seems to have a tag of "Live Writer" so it shows up in the tag cloud)?

You can't out of the box. I had to add that manually after uploading the post. I can't see any way in Live Writer for it to use custom fields so I guess that it would need a plug-in written for it.
