If you’re a heavy blogger, one of the best practices you must learn is to install a blogging client, then connect your blog to the program.
Using a blog client has its advantages. Writing, loading, editing and formatting is faster. You can work on the article even if you’re offline. You can take advantage of built-in features not usually found in the generic editor on the web browser.
Connecting your blog to a client is not at all that hard. One of the aims of my blog is to help even the most technophobic of users do things that may appear complicated, but in truth is, they can be accomplished with just a few simple steps. That’s the reason why I’m posting step-by-step guides and videos to assist users on a regular basis.
This article is split into two parts, based on the client used: Microsoft Word and Windows Live Writer.
Part I: Microsoft Word
Many computers still come pre-installed with Microsoft Office, so Word is pretty accessible. Posting to a blog is one of the best features of the program. To simplify things, I made this video showing the steps needed to register your blog.
