Working with Blog Posts
● Open Existing Click this button to open a list of posts that have been published on
your blog. You can then select a post, download it, edit it, and republish it.
● Manage Accounts Click to open Blog Accounts, a dialog box in which you can add,

INSIDE OUT Add the Blog template to your Jump List
If you use Windows 7, you can pin the Blog template to the Jump List or Start menu
icon for Word, which allows you to start a new blog post directly from your desktop,
without even starting Word first.
To set this up, you must have a Word icon pinned to your taskbar, or Word must be
on your Start menu, either as a pinned item or in the recently used list. Right-click the
Word icon on the taskbar, or click the arrow next to it on the Start menu. If you’ve
recently created a blog post, as described in the preceding sections, a template named
Blog should appear under Recent. As shown next, click Pin To This List next to Blog,
which ensures that it stays on the list permanently.
Thereafter, when you open the Jump List (from the taskbar icon or the Start menu), you
can simply click Blog to open a new blog post window in Word.
