This question could have gone to either the blog forum or the Picasa forum. Picnik is a recent addition to Picasa for editing. A friend told me she uses it for her blog. What other applications have access to Picnik. I teach a class in using Picnik and want to emphasize how useful it can be outside of Picasa. What else did Google attach it to?
And what is the difference between subscribe to this topic and watch this topic (buttons below)?
And does Post New Topic (button) mean post this topic or will I get set up for a new (another) topic. Guess I will find out in 3 seconds.

Subscribe vs Watch: Subscribe means that you will get an email when anyone responds to that topic. With 'watched topics' you do not get an email when a new post is made. It was intended originally more for admin/moderator use or for users who may want to return to a topic later – like a bookmark.
Post New Topic is the button you see when you're writing a new topic and you're done and want to post it. .. Now that I'm replying to your topic, that button reads, “Post New Reply.” Add New Topic is the button for starting a new message.
As for Picnik … you've probably used it more than I have! I'm not sure what your student means by using it for her blog. Other than fancying up her pictures for how she wants them to look in her blog. I don't see blogger as one of the automatic sharing sites. She certainly can share a Picnik creation with Picasa Web Albums, then it's easy to add from there to Blogger. Picnik existed for quite a while before Google bought them – that's why they have sharing options like Photobucket, and Flickr (non-Google photo-sharing sites) I expect Blogger will be added sometime. I see that Facebook is on there … hmmm … I'll have to play a bit more.
