OK here goes I bought a new laptop with office 2013 and that comes with Word with Live Writer the new verison. I can post a blog but can’t post any pictures. I store pictures in my laptop in Picasa 3. Here is what I get for help. the old system was sure a lot easier too.


  1. In the New Blog Account dialog box, select Other in the list of blog providers.
  2. In the New Account dialog box, select your Application Programming Interface (API) and type in your blog post URL.

The API and blog post URL information may be available from your provider. Check with your provider for an API and blog post URL, and type them in the boxes provided.

  1. Type your user name and password.

Your user name and password are the credentials that you use to log on to your blog account.

Please help me figure out what keys to hit to make our blog better 


Thanks Chris Cool

Something’s wrong. I wonder if they didn’t load the right version of Live Writer. Here’s what my dialog box looks like for my Blog setup:

The latest version is 2012 – check your Help->About to see what yours is.

Here’s the download link: http://windows.microsoft.com/e…..rviewother

Thanks Chris, 

yes this version Live Writer came with Office 2013 in Word. Last night I gave up. I had my geek cousin try to fix it. Nothing !!!  Well I had 2012 Live Writer loaded off Internet. When I down loaded 12 they said I already have a better version loaded. Ya right. Then we tried the old laptop to post pic. Then my cousin believed me. Well we tried to use 12 and Wa La. I’m up and running on 12 and happy. Thanks for your help.
