I’m exploring it because I’m a big Markdown booster, obviously. But also to see if it’s a better way to write blogposts while retaining a copy to eventually make its way into a zine or PDF. And I’ve noticed two immediate flaws:
- Like every alternative way to post to Blogger I’ve tried, there’s no way to schedule posts in advance. It’s now or never, dQQd. I’m not even sure you can tag posts before they are published. (Correction: Turns out you can specify the tags in a YAML block, but you won't know about this until you try to publish. Read the link they give, then cancel publishing to Blogger so you can add the block.)
- Because of the weird way Blogger handles images, you can’t just add images to your document, then publish, unless you are linking to an image that’s elsewhere on the web. You have do add the image in the Blogger editor. Which wouldn't be so bad, if you could “publish” as a draft, but see #1.
