Yay. This is quite cool...

It actually works

All you need to do is:

1. In your Blogger control panel, click the Settings tab.

2. In the Settings tab, click the Email link.

3. On the Email page, create your special address in the Mail-to-Blogger

Address box.

You need to think of just one word, because most of the address is set

and unchanging. The first part of the address is your account username;

the last part of the address is the domain. You need to

put a word in between, as shown on the page, and it’s best to use a word

that you easily remember — perhaps blog. Or entry. Or pickadilly. Notice

the BlogSend Address box. Put an e-mail address in there if you want to

be notified of your mailed entry being posted.

4. Click the Save Settings button.

You do not need to republish the blog.

5. In your e-mail program or interface, address an e-mail to your special

e-mail address, title and compose the e-mail, and send it.

The body of your e-mail becomes that text of your blog entry.

6. Check your blog for the entry’s appearance.

It can take up to a minute for the mailed entry to be posted.

You can use the Mail-to-Blogger feature from any connected computer and

e-mail program in the world. It doesn’t even have to be your e-mail; Blogger

doesn’t know or care who owns the e-mail account sending the entry to your

special address. That’s why it’s important to keep your special address

secret. Anyone who knows it can post to your blog. If that happens, change

the secret word on the Settings, Email page.
