In my previous post I wrote about using windows livewriter to write to and update blogs. Setting up livewriter to post to blogger blogs is somewhat easy but whet it comes to wordpress blogs when we try to give all the details and try to  set it up sadly it fails. You don’t have to worry about it. You just have to enable posting you have enable the WordPress, Movable Type, MetaWeblog and Blogger XML-RPC publishing protocols. This will  make your blog accept connection from windows live writer and you will be able to update your blog using it.

Here are the steps you have to follow to do this:

1. Login to your wordpress dashboard.

2. Click on the “Writing” option under “settings”.
