Publish Post to Any Of Your Blogger Blogs Directly From iGoogle

Good News for all bloggers blogging through blogger.com. Blogger.com announced the launch of draft version of the Blogger Posting Gadget for iGoogle. With this gadget, you can write, save, and publish posts to any of your Blogger blogs directly from iGoogle.

Interested? Try it now: Add to Google

Make sure you’re signed in with the same Google account you use on Blogger in order to start posting.


Currently, the gadget supports the following:

  • Editing the HTML of title, body and labels
  • A drop-down menu to select from multiple blogs (if you have them)
  • The ability to publish a post immediately, or save it back to Blogger as a draft post

Tip: If you start writing a post in HTML and decide that you want image uploading or other rich text features, just click “Save Draft.” The gadget will save the post, then give you a link to directly edit the post in Blogger.
Some compatibility notes:

  • The Blogger posting gadget will only work in iGoogle, not in other gadget containers, because it requires authenticating with your google.com cookie. This restriction will be removed in the future.
  • Since this gadget uses the JavaScript Google Data API for Blogger, it does not work in Apple’s Safari browser. This will be fixed in the future as well.
