Is there a way to get an HTTPS connection when editing or posting on blogger?

I've just blogged about this gmailblog.blogspot.co.uk/2008/07/making-security-easier.html and in there I propose the idea of a cloud based service to allow the secure access to blogger. Anybody knows a good option? – Dinis Cruz Apr 27 '12 at 9:11

It seem like Google does not enable HTTPS for more than the login process on Blogger. The main reason for this seems to be that using HTTPS is very resource intensive. See this Google Blogger support tread.

You're right, and I'm fascinated by Google's justification, considering my gmail is all SSL by default! And I'd imagine gmail gets much more frequent traffic than blogger. – Kevin Laity Mar 17 '11 at 15:38
@Kevin But there is generally a bigger demand for security with email than a blog. Presumably what's edited on a blog most of the time is or will become public so the demand for https is much lower. – Davy8 Mar 17 '11 at 16:49
The link above doesn't work anymore (and I couldn't find that article in that blogger group) – Dinis Cruz Apr 27 '12 at 9:12
