Creating a new blog using Live Writer


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

    <!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:Verdana; panose-1:2 11 6 4 3 5 4 4 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:536871559 0 0 0 415 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} -->

    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


    Select blog type

    How can I select one of these options from the drop-down menu when I don’t have a blog yet?!


    Remote posting URL for your blog:

    I don’t have a blog yet, so I have no URL!


    I thought Live Writer was supposed to set up a new blog for me, but that last setup menu assumed that I already have a blog.  I need help to get this blog set up.  Thank you.
