Blogging from Microsoft Word

word 2013 preview

This would be my first blog post I am doing from outside the wordpress editor, I rarely do that. I have once bogged from a wordpress app, but that’s the farthest away from the wordpress editor on the web. It’s quite an easy experience, you will be required to choose the blog provider, from a list of wordpress, blogger, typepad and a few others that just passed me. From then you will be requested to log in to your blog on the wizard. And a warning that your information could be made available to other people, I wonder who these are. Once login is successful, you then see this editor, ofcourse all this requires an internet connection. So lemme hit publish and see if this will be a successful first blog post from Ms Word, I am using office 2013 preview.

And then I can wonder where you add tags, categories and check whether you have used the right keywords, you know there is a plugin for that, don’t you? Shucks! You need to login again, as I have noted, actually, I had not just checked the remember password box, I rarely do. And you have an option to publish for real or publish as drafr and do any other edits you will require. Just remembered, I have not googled an image to go with this, will do so later.


  • You can save a document offline and post it when you want.
  • You have this wide editor, unlike the wordpress editor(though you can expand that)


  • You cannot upload images from Ms Word
  • You cannot add tags, set post category
  • You cannot check your keywords use

But anyway, you wouldn’t expect al the nice things out there now , would you? Also this is just another way to kill the cat. There is the proven way of dipping it in water inside a sack, you only approach other methods if you are short of the better options.
