Blogging from Word 2007

I pressed the "new" menu on Word 2007, and saw "blog post" as an option. So I had to give it a try. Authenticating with Blogger was easy. There is "picture options" menu item. Apparently this allows you to drop pictures into your blog post in Word and have the picture automatically uploaded by Word. My only choices for Blogger were "none" or "My own server." That's disappointing since Blogger can allow for uploads, but more importantly, there are so many picture hosting sites out there. Where's Flickr or Photobucket? Oh well. Also, there is an "Insert Category" button on the ribbon, that sounds like something for adding tags (err labels heh heh) to the blog post. This was disabled for Blogger. Maybe for Microsoft's blogging service (Windows Live Spaces?) this is enabled. Still pretty cool to be able to use Word so easily to blog.
