I am starting a Blog and I am trying to keep my Localhost version as up to date as possible with my Remote server version on the web.

I would really like to be able to make a post/article on my Localhost install and have it somehow post the same article/post to my Web version (remote version) once I hit publish.

Does anyone know if there is a plugin or other method to easily automate or help with such a task? My main goal is that I will have a Local and Remote version of all articles when I post them, I would prefer to be able to post first on my Local version and then publish the end result to my website/remote install

Post data is stored in the database, so you can't do that without a custom script that replaces the stored data to properly reflect the current site. Your best bet is to export/import it. – Wyck Feb 14 '12 at 3:25
I'm currently working on a plugin that addresses a similar need. Basically what you need to do is use the post hook and use XML-RPC to remotely post it. – user17518 Jun 26 '12 at 4:53

You can easily use Windows Live writer and manage several blogs
from your home and get a preview on how the post would look like
in your blog pre-publish

Try it you gona love it!

Do you know if it's possible to post the same post to multiple blogs via WLW? – AlxVallejo Apr 3 '12 at 2:19
its not a built feature in but you can i guess copy paste – Sagive SEO Apr 3 '12 at 10:46
Also, there is no support for custom taxonomies in WLW – AlxVallejo Apr 11 '12 at 16:24
