Easy Blog Posting For New Engine...

One of the reasons I stayed with Blogger for so long was the convenience of posting blogs.

Blogger hooks you in by adding Browser Toolbar blogging tools, Add-Ons to Word to allow blogging etc and it is something I kinda miss. Sometimes you want to do a quick post and not have to load up the full cms system.

I am thinking of using what I built for the Guarantee Certificates and adapting it to be a quick blog posting application that runs in the tasktray...

Because I am using the same engine as Peter I can also give him a copy of it an together we will be able to enhance our blogging app.

More details as I plan it...

You could write some code to implement the Blogger API[1], the MetaWeblog API[2], or the Atom API[3] (your best bet as Atom has a lot of momentum right now, it's well-designed, and pretty close to complete). These would allow you to use tools like w.bloggar[4] and others to post offline or knock them out quickly.

The best thing about it is that you're reusing stuff that's already out there.

Argh! That page for the Atom API is fine, but http://www.atomenabled.org/developers/api/ is the one I meant to include.
