Two Blogger bugs

After having started blogging, I've started looking at everyday things more critically. I noticed two things with blogger.com that caught my attention.

I have this habit of creating a blog post and saving it as draft. After many a iterations of writing and rewriting, I finally publish the post. Often times the gap between creating the post for the first time and publishing it takes several days. I have several draft post that I work on at any given point in time.

I created a post on February 26th, finally published this post on march 4th. The published date on my blog still lists as february 26th instead of march 4th.
The other bug related to my blog title, I'll still drafting.
