Microsoft made the announcement that Open Live Writer was coming to the Windows Store on Monday as part of its Ignite IT conference. Here's a quick description:

Open Live Writer is like Word for your blog. Open Live Writer is a powerful, lightweight blog editor that allows you to create blog posts, add photos and videos then publish to your website. You can also compose blogs posts offline and then publish on your return. Open Live Writer works with many popular blog service providers such as WordPress, Blogger, TypePad, Moveable Type, DasBlog and many more.

Microsoft first released the desktop app many years ago as Windows Live Writer. Earlier this year, a team composed of several Microsoft employees revived the app and changed its name to Open Live Writer, while also turning the app into an open source project.
