This post is done using HTML formatting in my email client and emailed directly to Blogger to save time posting. If you have not tried this feature, you may want to enable it in the control panel and check it out.
What I have found is that it may actually be easier to do posting in this manner as Blogger does not yet have an automatic future blog publishing feature. The only thing to watch out for is line breaks. Push your enter key twice to make it look nice in your email and Blogger will interpret that as lots of extra spaces on your post.
