Is it just me, or is Blogger for Word a pretty big deal? Now would be bloggers don’t even have to open up a blog to post; they can do it all from within a very familiar, spell-checkable environment with just two clicks of a button. Not the most powerful little app, but I think it might just raise the comfort level quite a bit. No? Seems like another step toward the seamless integration of publishing tools into the “normal” work environment.

I agree. It is a big deal. Now if only we can get the IT folks in our district to install it . . .
Sean FitzGerald says
No – I think it’s huge. I’ve been saying for ages that Microsoft should and could easily integrate blog publishing into Office. And they haven’t! They are too slow – it was up to someone else who’s a lot more nimble to do it. I’m suprising this hasn’t created more of a stir.
Raj Boora says
I agree, there should have been more of a do about this. But maybe it’s because the people who would use it are not the people who are going to be able to find it. Most people will use the built in checker on the Blogger site (or the one in their OS – for Mac Heads). But the ability to have a local copy of your blog in Word format is certainly appealing.
