>From the beginning of my blogger days until now, I’ve been frustrated by the fact that when you viewed your blog and found something in it that you wanted to edit you had to go through an onerous number of commands and clicks in order to get to the edit post mode. First you went to Favorites, then to the Typepad folder, then to the “list post” url, then once in the TP list post screen you had to locate the specific post (if your post was beyond #20 then you had to navigate to the bottom of this screen in order to expand your post list to display 75), open it and begin the editing process.

I should add that in order for this to work you must enable cookies and be logged into the TP site.
