Well, I had written this post in Word 2007, but it didn’t publish to my blog… strange. Anyway, here was my post (at least written in Word ’07):
Yep, this post is going up from Word 2007 directly to my blog. If the blog-posting features of Word are enhanced a bit, I will definitely start using it for major post creation. The overall quality of Office 2007 so far is impressive. Iâ€™ve been testing Vista for awhile, but this was my first look at the Office 2007 betas. Neat stuff, though you can see some rough edges. Performance is â€˜okâ€™ and should be improved as it approaches release. Currently, there are no extra features for blog-posting to WordPress, though I do expect that they will start to work on these soon. For example, categories are not supported directly from Word yet, and they claim that the post date is incorrect (Iâ€™ll check when I post). The last time I used an off-line tool to write and then publish a post, it would â€˜breakâ€™ my page layout (theme), so Iâ€™m hoping that Word doesnâ€™t do this; though I will risk it just to test the functionality. So far, Iâ€™m impressed with the current build, the new toolbars are extremely easy to understand and use right away â€“ I think these are the single best improvement to the Office suite. More on the product laterâ€¦
Ugh, in my haste I managed to forget to paste the Title in, so the post slug will be weird.Â Guess Word ’07 isn’t quite up to the task of blog posting yet.Â ‘Darn’.
