This is just a quick reminder post for me (or someone else who stumbles across this) that the solution to connecting your MSDN blog to Windows Live Writer can be found here:

Note the following:

  1. The Settings URL did not take me to my account settings.  I had to log into my account and then go to the Settings page on http://blogs.msdn.com.
  2. The login to allow 3rd party application access to your MSDN blog, e.g. Windows Live Writer, does not use your Microsoft Account password.  There is a separate password, which is what you are requesting to change.
  3. Although my outlook.com address is what I use to log into my MSDN blog, it still wanted my Hotmail.com address to log in with Windows Live Writer.
