How to Publish to WordPress Blog Directly from Microsoft Word

The WordPress I’m talking about here is not the WordPress.com, but the WordPress.org that requires a web hosting service. One of the most common problems faced by newbies using WordPress is finding a correct word-processing tool. Although, WordPress has an inbuilt word processor, but it can’t check punctuation, grammar, and sentence coherence.

Bloggers that are conversant with Microsoft Word will understand the length at which the tool can work. For instance, I no longer need to write HTML codes when I want to make tables, unlike in the past. With Microsoft Word, I perfect everything and post it directly on my blog without any ado.

I’m currently using Microsoft Word 2010 on my PC. All screenshot and steps are based on MS word 10. However, a friend of mine that uses MS Word 2013 told me this method also works for him. Meaning that, this tutorial will work on MS Word 10 and 13.
