Consider using MS's Onenote, (or Evernote if MS software is not your thing) - they are both excellent.  I would say One note is one of the best pieces of software MS have come up with for a long time. Up there with Excel for sheer usefulness.  I use it everyday now.

I use Blogspot.com which may belong to Google(?).

  Blogspot has a browser based editor and I use that.  The edited blog is saved as a draft until I publish it.  The editor sucks, but it mostly works to do what I need.  I could use word or notepad I suppose to do it offline annd then just paste it in at the last moment.  I use the provided editor simply because I am trying to get a standard look and feel and there is a very limited set of fonts with the provided editor.  I could of course just do the formatting at the end after the paste but... so far I don't. I do edit it as a draft, save it, work on it, polish it, then publish it.  I can edit it after publishing if I need to.
