Publishing from Word to WordPress

Using Word to publish Blog Posts to WordPress comes in handy when you want to use different:

Fonts

Font sizes

Font colours

Tables

Table formatting

 Formatting Links

There are many more advantages like being able to use the Format Painter to quickly use the same formatting in another part of the post. You can write the post while you are offline.

It may pay to add the images once the post has been published as draft on WordPress especially if you want to use the ‘alt’ description, etc..
The Video below gives an example on how to do this. Microsoft Word 7 works the same as this.
