Or, instead of those gazillion steps, copy your text, links and photos from Windows Live Writer and paste it all into Blogger. The only formatting I needed to do was re-paragraphing. Everything else worked, including live links, photos, Youtubes, etc. It took most of 2 minutes.


Thank you so much! I’ve been going around in circles ever since I installed win 8… works for me now :slight_smile:

@ASHU_SINGH, Welcome to Blogging community. I am glad that you have found your problem’s solution. You can ask too about any blogging problem. :smile:


This method will not work now because Windows Live Writer is now an Open Source Project and has permanently stopped support for Blogger blogs. Fortunately Its now developed and maintained with a new name “Open Live Writer” which is much more advanced and frequently updated as compared to WLW.
