You could use StackEdit (I'm the developer). It's a web-based Markdown editor and it allows you to publish your document (Markdown or converted HTML) on different sites. Amongst others, you can post to Blogger.

I have found the solution myself. Google used to have a feature Publish to Blogs under Publish to the Web on Google Docs/Drive and it had the option I was looking for. But sometime back Google dropped this feature very quietly and now there is no direct way.

It is not possible to upload files other than image and video files to Blogger. You would have to use other file sharing websites like Dropbox to share such files. Also, your Google Drive link works perfectly fine, feel free to use that link to share the same file with other people.

I think that "Cross-posted on the Gmail Blog" on the page you refer to is just another way of saying "Same content also posted on the Gmail Blog". Some specific platforms (e.g. Usenet) have a built-in mechanism for "cross-posting" (e.g. a way of tagging content so that it shows up in more than one context). There is no such general mechanisms for the web, ...

I just found out that if you publish your blog post containing p-tags right away instead of switching to the HTML tab first, then the p-tags stays. Example: <p> Here is a body text<br /> that is wrapped in p-tags<br /> </p> Goto HTML view. Enter the code above. Click the Publish button. If you try to look at the code in the HTML ...

Facebook automatically parses out some text it thinks is important from your website. Certain Open Graph Tags are respected to figure out what content to show. If you have control over the HTML on your blogspot website, I recommend placing a few Open Graph tags to give some meta-data about your page.

Yes, it's true. If you have a Google+ account, any image that is 2048 x 2048 pixels or smaller will not count against your total storage limit. If you do not have a Google+ account, any image that is 800 x 800 pixels or smaller will not count. Reference: http://support.google.com/picasa/answer/1224181?hl=en

That is the link to the Google Drive image viewer, rather than a link to the image itself. If you check the URL for the image when you visit that link, you get an URL like: blob:https%3A//drive.google.com/32efcf38-d7e6-4656-9046-eede4c4880f9 That's not useful. You need to do a little URL manipulation of your original URL to be able to hotlink it. You need ...

Pictures smaller than 2048 x 2048 pixels are ignored and they don't count as used space, only bigger pictures. So you might worry to clear only those pictures that are bigger than that. Source: Free storage - Picasa and Picasa web albums help

Perl has several good modules for doing this. LWP: Mechanize: Both can be found on http://search.cpan.org From the command line, when this tool is called, you can recursively grab all files in the directory by typing wget -r sitename. Wget: http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/ As for out of the box software that you can use on a GUI, I am of no help.

You can actually effectively search even private blogs by entering your search in the NavBar at the top of the screen. Sadly, the "Search This Blog" widget doesn't work for some reason. You can find the settings for the NavBar (which is ugly, in my opinion) under the "Layout" settings of your Blogger blog.

The images in the folder(s) with the blog's name are the ones used. The second part of the url contains the actual key to the image: e.g. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tc0JaPm2Luo/VJqZUl8q-UI/AAAAAAAA5k8/fVCSrRSl7t4/s1600/Navy-F-18-Hornet-Christmas-lights.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-tc0JaPm2Luo/VJqZUl8q-UI/AAAAAAAA5lA/YMyATHLE0Fs/s1600/Navy-F-18-...

You need to use the "Edit HTML" (under Template) link and add the relevant stylesheets to enable the MathJax feature in your blog. Add the link to the script using the <script> tag and you should be able to get it running using Javascript. With that, you should create/edit posts using the necessary HTML code to make sure the math equations appear just ...

I'll rewrite @pajju's answer, because this was the path I chose and I think it works well, although I'll include examples. The source page is this: http://dvdotsenko.blogspot.in/2012/08/markdown-with-blogspotcom-and-bloggercom.html The basic idea is to write your markdown in HTML mode in a script tag: <script type="text/x-markdown"> #markdown ...

There is no capability to do what you want within Blogger. Both their standard export, as well as the Google Takeout export produce XML. The only other option I can think of is some kind of screen-scraper. But TBH, scripting over the XML would probably be easier to do.

So you will have to manually edit each post, look at it in HTML mode and find-and-replace any links. This ...

I'm very surprised that the photos are still in your blog after you've removed them from your Google+ gallery - are you sure that it's not just a cached version that you're seeing. What Google have told us is that there is one set of photos, and that they can be accessed from either PWA or Google+ Photos, and of course they can be loaded (but not managed in ...

Unfortunately for you, that's not how Bloggers Error's and Redirections > Custom Redirects works: this tool can only be used to redirect one post or page within the blog's "domain" to another one within the same domain. Eg you can redirect from www.myBlog.blogspot.com/2015/01/original-title.html to www.myBlog.blogspot.com/2015/06/different-title....
