Emacs Blogger Integration

I find editing text outside of Emacs very cumbersome. Editing HTML directly inside Emacs or any other editor is also very cumbersome. What I think I need is a way to edit certain types of markup from within Emacs but save it into some blogging "backend" such as Blogger. What I have done so far is use the Mozex Firefox extension to edit text fields inside Blogger, and that is a big improvement, but it is still lacking: To see the rendered HTML, I have to switch between Firefox and Emacs, and I am still writing in HTML, versus a WYSIWYG view of the text. Some possibilities that I may eventually investigate are: If anyone has any experiences with those, or can offer other alternatives, I would like to know.
