Use Microsoft Word ’07 as a desktop blogging tool

Few moments ago, while using Microsoft Word 2007 I found it strange that there is an inbuilt option in Word 07 to use it as a desktop blogging tool. Personally I prefer Windows Live Writer (WLW) as a desktop blogging client, but making use of Word 07 too is not a bad idea, as Ms-Office is pre installed in almost all Windows systems and you need not install WLW which also requires .NET Framework to be pre-installed. Also this is good for blogger who does not blog too often.

Even I tried writing an article on my blog using Word and found that it is as simple and convenient as WLW. If you too want to blog using MS Word 07 just follow these simple procedure:

  • Open MS Word and hit the office button on the top left corner.
  • Go to New-> Blank & Recent-> New blog post
  • Use ‘Manage Account’ option on blog tool bar (pointed out on the image) to configure your online account
  • Just enter your contents and hit ‘Publish’
  • Instead you can even save an article as a draft on your weblog to edit it later from a remote computer.

That is all what it takes to blog using Word 2007. 🙂 As said earlier if you do not blog very often, than this is the best option available for you.
