From that point on, it is easy to create blog entries in SharePoint using this (or many other)
MetaWeblog API–compatible program; the configuration should be the hardest part.
Remember that MetaWeblog API is a web application setting; therefore, enabling it will provide this
kind of integration for all blogs on all sites in all site collections residing in that web application.
Here are some other notes on using LiveWriter:
If you log into SharePoint using a different account, you may want to choose Other Blog Service
instead of SharePoint Blog. It will take you to a screen to enter the URL for your blog (for example,
http://spf2:8080/adminblog ) where you prov ide your username and password (assuming
authentication via the API is enabled on the SharePoint server, it will be sent as clear text).
When you’re finished, click Next. Live Writer will check to see whether there is a web page at
that address; when you are prompted for a service provider, choose MetaWeblog API.
For the remote posting URL, you’ll need to tack
/_layouts/metaweblog.aspx onto the end
of your blog’s URL (for example, http://server/myblog/_layouts/metaweblog.aspx).
