Google Docs publishes to blogs, but… why?

January 10th, 2008 — 3:52pm

It’s not abundantly clear to me why Google Docs added a blog API to their “Publish” feature. Granting that it’s a tolerable (but not stellar) mode in which to enter text on the Web, OK, I’m nonetheless unclear on why to prefer Google Docs as the input channel to the blog’s (e.g. WordPress’s) native input mechanism — either way, you type the words into the little box. Nevertheless, the feature is there, and so I must test it. Right now.

Also: hi!

Also: ought it not propagate the title from Google Docs to the blog in question? Evidence suggests that it does not.
