Blogging right from Word 2007
Posted by Manoj Garg on September 22, 2009
I have been using Microsoft Office 2007 since last one and half years and frankly speaking “I’m lovin’ it”. Be it quick style feature of Word 2007 or ShapeStyle, WordArt Style of Powerpoint 2007, I have been using them extensively in this period. The new interface is so usable at the same time providing me lots of, out of the box available formatting features like table style, document templates n so on.
Ok so enough of praises for Office 2007, after all this post is not about why I like it. There are plethora of resources, posts, videos available over net describing the above mention benefits (features) of office 2007. This post is about creating and publishing a blog entry right from Word 2007 document. Since last few days I have been trying to be little active with my blog and write something to do justice with the its tagline “What I learned today“. Last week I was reading Gaurav’s blog and there he had a post about blogging from Word itself. So far I have been using Windows Live Writer to do most of my blogging related stuff(which is minimal BTW J), which is a great tool for blogging but it didn’t allowed me to format my post the way I wanted them to for ex putting quotes, creating colored tables for comparison related stuff etc. After reading gaurav’s post, I myself thought to give a spin to this feature of publishing content from word.
So here is the post for my tryst with blogging in Word 2007.
Enable publishing form word
Go to Office Button in word and then select Blog option for Publish menu item.
This would ask you to register a blog account with MS Word. Register your blog by providing the details about your blog as shown in below screenshots.
After registering the blog a new word document will open and you are good to go. I tried various formatting setting, picture formatting. So far so good. I am going to use word now instead of Livewriter.
