Using Markdown to create blog entries in Blogger.com / Blogspot

Tools of the trade

a. A simple markdown editor (offline / online). My choice is the fabulous Sublime Text 2/3 editor along with the Markdown Preview plugin)

b. Enable blog by mail settings & configure a mail id in your blogger.com blog Blog @ Speed of Thought

c. GMail (or any other Mail Client which support HTML mails)


Steps to Create the Post

  1. Create your blog content as a .md file, using the markdown editor

  2. Preview the .md file via a Markdown Preview Tool (Which Converts the markdown to HTML) or the browser

  3. Copy (Ctrl + A & Ctrl + C) from the browser preview

  4. Compose a new mail in GMail addressed to configured.email@blogger.com

  5. Paste the content (Ctrl + V)

  6. Send Mail

Bingo!! You should now have a html formatted blog entry.

Enjoy!
