Blogging from iGoogle

After a least a dang month, the Fridge has finally taken some time to dive into the Google Reader. One neat thing I found was from Tammy Worcester's Tip of the Week. You can add a Blogger widget on your iGoogle page so that you can post from iGoogle. Great! Except...I'm not sure about links and pictures. I'm actually typing in iGoogle now and will be interested to see how the link to Tammy's page shows up. What? You thought I'd try it ahead of time on a little-known blog that I keep? What's the point??? There is no formatting bar (link was typed out with html code...who does that anymore??), which is easily the thing I would miss the most. I do think, though, that it's a widget, therefore to be used for something quick. If you think about it that way, it's a great way to post a quick blog.

Just a follow-up, the link worked fine. The other idea I had as I was hitting the "Publish" button is that the "Save Draft" button is still right next to "Publish" in the iGoogle widget. Therefore, you could type out your whole post in iGoogle, save it, then go into Blogger when you have more time later to add links, pics, etc.
