Possible security/spam risks with Gmail, Google Calendar and Blogger in combination? What do you think?

If you send an email to some recipients from Gmail and add event invitation, and also include a bcc to a secret email address for publishing the text on blogger, the secret address will be revealed for everyone forever. It doesn't even seem possible to remove it from Google's cache.

I prefer that email recipients only receive one email with a ics-file (iCalendar) with time and date. Now, the recipients get spammed with two different emails, and blogs secret email-to-publish get public.

If you search you find a lot of mistakes.
For example: You are receiving this courtesy email at the account malwil1944.pamwil1945[put at-character here] because you are an attendee of this event.
