Testing, mike testing: updating my blog using Word

I just noticed the other day that there was a publish to blog function in Word. I wouldn’t want to support MS Word too much, but I find that logging on to my Blog site is the one of the biggest deterrents to updating it. So I am testing whether writing in Word and publishing to my WordPress site works. If this does work, it will make it so much easier to publish.

Instructions: What I have been directed to do is…

1. Write what I want to write.

2. Choose “Publish” to Blog in the main menu

3. Then, in manage accounts, again in menu, choose WordPress.

4. Type name of blog with the space they provide. ie. http://%5Bnameofyourblog%5D.wordpress.com/somecodewhichyoushouldnotchange

5. Type username/password (remember if you need to) (though I am concerned about security of remembering passwords on MS Word).

6. What I typed will now have a blog interface. I am directed to put a heading to the post. There is an option to use categories, but I haven’t tested it. I wonder if it can remember the categories I have used, or do I have to use fresh categories everytime.

Now to see if this works. Click… publish.

(from wordpress: yes it does work. Pretty cool)

I still haven’t tested putting photos etc. But text for now is enough.

Philippians 2:11-13 (NIV) (12)Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, (13)for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
