new gmail password not accepted by livewriter

I changed my gmail password four days ago.  Since then I've created a post for my blog in Live Writer, but when I try to publish it the Blogger Log In box says that "Windows Live Writer is unable to log into the remote server using the user name and password.  Please check that the information is correct and try again." 

I'm able to log into my blog, so I don't think it's a Blogger issue--is it?  or is it a Windows Live Writer issue? 

Is this because I have a new gmail password?

Thanks so much!

Thanks so much!

please make sure that you use the following steps

1. Verify you are using http or https for you website.

2. Add ' @gmail.com ' at the end of your user name.

3. If your account has 2-step verification enabled then see the following guide to use app specific password rather than your original password.
