I found this option on blogspot to publish to the blog by email.
Inveterate fiddler with technology that I am, I just had to try it.
Here's a quote that appeared in my in box, so at least I have a little content.
"We must practice the skill of listening instead of speaking, of acknowledging and celebrating difference instead of recoiling from it, of putting ourselves, as squarely as we can, into the experience of others." -- Andre Carothers, Writer and organizational consultant
(Added later) Well that was ugly. I think I'll avoid posting by email for now
