Blogging with Microsoft Word lets you use the richly featured word processor to circumvent many of the underpowered, sometimes unfriendly aspects of browser-based interfaces used by platforms like WordPress or Blogger. We’ll show you several ways to write and publish blog posts directly from Word, using the tools and shortcuts you already know.
While this tutorial is written for Word 2013, the necessary features are available in all versions starting from Word 2007.
If you haven’t already set up a WordPress blog, you can do it in just a few minutes. Just visit WordPress.com, pick a URL that’s not taken yet, and fill in some basic personal info. WordPress will try to upsell you to the $25-per-year hosting, but if you decline you’ll still have unlimited free hosting and a “[something].wordpress.com” domain name.
