      Why would people want to publish a weblog using Blogger's services?
      Whatever the reason that is why blogger.el was written to use
      XML-RPC. weblogger.el built on blogger.el's work to support the
      MetaWeblog API that many weblog frameworks (e.g. LiveJournal,
      Wordpress) support.

      If you would rather write a bunch of static files to the server, then
      other Emacs-based solutions exist:

      - BlogMax (http://www.billstclair.com/blogmax/blogmax.el)

      - Planner.el (http://www.plannerlove.com/) Sacha Chua maintains
      planner.el and uses it to publish her weblo
      to integrate her del.icio.us tags with her journal entries that she
      then publishes on her weblog.

      And there are others....

      Mark.
