Creating a new blog not worki RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows Live account and want to add a blog to my website.  I downloaded Windows Live Writer (Version 14.0.8050.1202) and went through these steps:

    Configure Windows Live Writer – hit NEXT


    Selected: I don’t have a blog; create one on Windows Live for me – hit NEXT


    Sign in with your Windows Live ID

    Entered Windows Live ID and password – hit NEXT

    A screen appears briefly called "setting up your blog account", but then I get the "select blog type" screen which needs a blog type and a url - so I assume the blog creation has failed.

    Anyone know how to make this work ?

  • In Internet browser go to http://home.spaces.live.com/ it show any error or show tools view space / edit and such...

    You want add blog to your website like http://blog.yourdomain.com/ or to your Windows Live profile? > Blog service in live World is Windows Live Spaces.

    If Live Writer automaticly does not recognize your blog on Spaces, choose Spaces from options, write your URL fot posting (you find this in options of Live Spaces) and go.
