Managing Blog Accounts
Either way, a new window opens, as shown in Figure 10-4. (The main difference between
the two methods is that one includes the content of the currently open document, whereas
the other starts with a blank page.) You’ll notice some differences from an ordinary
document window: a Blog Post tab replaces the Home tab, and most other tabs are missing.
(That’s because blogs don’t support the full range of Word capabilities, so Word doesn’t
expose the unavailable options.) And a content control at the top of the document
commands you to Enter Post Title Here.
Figure 10-4 The Blog Post tab incorporates features from the standard Home and Review tabs in
addition to the blog-specific features in the Blog group.
Managing Blog Accounts
If this is your first time using the blogging feature, Word asks you to register your blog
account, as shown in Figure 10-5. Click Register Now to configure Word to work with
an existing blog or to set up a new blog. The few steps to register a blog account vary
depending on the service, but the onscreen descriptions are reasonably clear and include
links to web pages with more details about completing the process. In any case, it takes
only a minute or two—but you can postpone the operation if you like by clicking Register
Later. If you take that option, you can create, edit, and save blog entries, but you can’t post
them until you register your account, which you can do at any time.
Figure 10-5 If you choose Register Later, you can initiate the process by clicking Manage
Accounts in the Blog group on the Blog Post tab—or simply wait until Word prompts you when
you attempt to post an entry.
