Blogging with Microsoft Word
Word 2007 and Word 2010 enable you to publish your blog content right from the application. There's no need to learn a completely different tool to create a blog. The only additional information you'll need is how to connect Word to your online blog, and Microsoft has made this pretty easy.
Once you've completed your document, choose the File menu and select Save & Send. Then select Publish as Blog Post and click the Publish as Blog Post button on the right side of the window, shown in Figure 6.
Once you do this, you'll be prompted to register a blog account. You can click either Register Now or Register Later if you need more time to decide which site to publish use.
If you choose Register Now, you'll be prompted to select the blog provider. As shown in Figure 7, Word ships with six different providers for blogs.
Alternatively you can select Other if your provider isn't listed.
Each vendor has certain requirements, so after clicking Next you'll be required to fill out the information required for that provider. Once the vendor has been configured, you can create and edit Word documents as you've always done and easily publish your content for everyone to read on the Internet.
As shown in Figure 8, the tabs on the menu change once you start editing your blog. The Blog Post tab is made available and includes the option to publish and manage your accounts that you've configured.
You can now leverage all the skills you use in Word for your blog.
