How to make Word 2007 open a new blog document by default when I start it

I have Office 2007 pro installed on a Windows 7 X64 machine.

When I start word, I get a blank document by default.

Instead, I would like word to open a blank "new blog post" document.

Is this possible ?
How might I go about doing this ?

you could place your document in the startup folder to open it at each word session

C:\Users\[YOUR USER NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP
