It may be worth mentioning that almost all blogging interfaces use
XML-RPC (or maybe SOAP), and that AppleScript has had "Call XMLRPC"
and "call SOAP" verbs since about 10.2.  Although it would take a bit
of customized logic, particularly for individual blogging systems,
categories, usernames, passwords, etc., it should be possible to
write an AppleScript (or script in any OSA-compatible language) that
does the work for you.

It wouldn't be trivial, though, and piping it through MarsEdit (or
other system) is probably better because that way, if the text
doesn't wind up looking exactly the way you think, you have a good
blog-oriented editor to fix it before it gets posted.  But it
*should* be possible.
