Blogger API on LJ

So this is, in actuality, a test post using the Blogger API for Livejournal. I found this nifty little program that I might be able to hack to handle multi-blog entries by default….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Multiple entries? As in posting the same entry to two or three different journals all at once? Something like that would be so awesome!!!

    I just gotta find the time to hack it out. I think I’ve got everythign I need – protocol specs, some test accounts…now all I need to do is write a UI ad then start plugging things in.

    I saw an app yesterday that supports both LJ, MT and Blogger but I didn’t mention it to you cause its for Windoze. I don’t know if there’s one for Linux like that yet. Likewise, Newsgator has plug-ins for all sorts of blog formats and a custom one could be rolled together to post the same entry through all of them but NG uses Outlook & .NET stuff.

    Now isn’t trackbacks or pingbacks (or outbacks heh heh) SOMETHING PLEASE out there already suppose to let you aggregate a post from another blog to yours. I see this done on a few of the more well read link-blogs out there so you’d think there’s something in the protocols to handle it. It may involve some RSS and MT scripting though.
