Blog with Word !

Breaking News : You can now blog from within MS Word by installing a simple plugin. You can 'publish', 'save as draft' or 'open' posts from via MS Word.

Go for it ! - these guys never cease to amaze me with their creative thinking. From now on, you know who to blame, if you lost your 'post' :P

Follow this link to read the FAQ for it.

p.s : Do you love music, don't miss out on the oppurtunity to enjoy some good music. Have to do no further than just scrolling down below this post :)

You are truly the Bloggers Guru! Thanx for this tip - excellent idea by MS to spread their monopoly umbrella.

Ganesh said...

nice one, I will try this out.

Arvind said...

CB,
Google has released the plugin, not MS :-)

Since you seem to be a techy, what Google has done is actually quite straight-forward :-)

Ganu Bhai,
Yes, i will also try out now :-)

Balaji said...

real cool feature... thanx for the pointer :)

Arvind said...

Balaji,

Welcome. On first try, i did not seem to like it that much vis-a-vis formatting - color formatting seems to get lost ! :-(

Balaji said...

gave it a shot with a small test post and was quite happy. Havent tried things like color formatting... really liked the fact that i can now blog at work while appearing to work on a document :-)

Arvind said...

Hope they can do the same with commenting as well - heee hee hee

***Diamon*** said...

No difference to me. I guess am not a blog guru then huh?
Still will try it and see if it will make things easier!

;)

Sounds cool.

Arvind said...

Diamon,

Sorry you lost me there :-(

Kasthuri,

I downloaded that. Its absolutely great! It looks like it is good even for picture post too! Lots of options are there to make use of.....

cosmicblob said...

Arvind - Well its Google's plugin - created by MS. CREATED BY MS. DO YOU HEAR ME NOW? Good. [p.s. if not - you will know what I am talking about very soon...]

I downloaded it but haven't used it yet. Yes - will be more useful if we can use it to post comments! Marketing Exec for Google - why don't you recommend that they get that feature added.

cosmicblob said...

Arvind - I heard myself - and I take it back. But what I said in [...] still holds...

Eshwar said...

Seems innovative. But I could not use many of MS Words basic features like para justification, images, font color, text properties etc. But I suppose it wuld eventually be supported. Great going google.
