Also thanks for the link. While I think Xah's language was a tad OTT, he
is right about the mess which is Emacs blogging solutions - it's not
easy.

The link he appended

http://code.google.com/p/e-blog/

worked fine first go for me and is nice. The only thing it, like most
emacs interfaces, seems to lack is the defaulting of the body to a
selected region if a region is selected. I like to use thingatpt+ and
the region-or-word-at-point function to default the text. It could also
do with prompting to accept the previous blog selected as a default.

regards

Richard.
