Using Word to Create and Edit Blog Posts
character style. Either way, Word recognizes the style’s heading level for use in outlines, the
Navigation pane, and tables of contents.
In Word 2002 and Word 2003, the default style type for a new style was linked, so when
you use templates developed in earlier versions of Word, you’re likely to see this type. (In
Word 2010, as in Word 2007, new styles are paragraph styles by default.)
Linked styles serve a useful purpose, but they can sometimes cause confusion or annoyance
because if text is selected when you apply a linked style, the style is applied only to the
selection instead of the entire paragraph. You can avoid the problem in two ways:
When you create a new style, if you don’t plan to use it as a run-in heading, set the
style type to Paragraph.
To work with an existing template that contains linked styles, open the Styles pane
(click the arrow in the lower right corner of the Styles group on the Home tab or
press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S), and then select Disable Linked Styles. This setting doesn’t
actually disable the styles; it merely changes their behavior to work like paragraph
styles.
Using Word to Create and Edit Blog Posts
If you maintain a blog, you’ve probably tried using the web-based interface provided by
the blogging service for creating, editing, and posting entries. Many of these interfaces are
awful. For users of some popular blogging services, Word 2010 offers a better solution.
With Word, you can create a new post from scratch, or you can publish an existing
document to a blog. Word works with most popular blogging services, including SharePoint,
WordPress, and TypePad. You create your post using Word’s familiar tools, and then with a
single click Word publishes it to your blog.
CAUTION !
For text-only blogs, Word also works well with other services, including Blogger and
Windows Live Spaces. However, its support for publishing pictures to blogs in these
services is less satisfactory. If you use one of these blogging services, you might be
happier with Windows Live Writer, a free program that’s part of Windows Live
Essentials. For more information and a download link, visit explore.live.com .
To create a new post, click File, New, and then double-click Blog Post. To publish an existing
document, open it, and then click File, Save & Send. Under Save & Send, click Publish As
Blog Post, and then click the Publish As Blog Post button.
