Carnage4Life, of the MSN Spaces team, posts on his blog, that MSN Spaces will be supporting the Metaweblog API soon. Or at least, a version of it
This is exellent news, it will allow tools like blogjet or other online services to interact with MSN Spaces and opens up it up to the rest of the blog-management arena.
I am starting to see a need for some kinds of blog-routing. For instance: I can now post from Flickr to most of my blogs. I can post from Blogjet to all of my blogs simultainiously. I can email my MSN Spaces blog with SMTP, I can moblog directly to Flickr.
I cannot email any of my other blogs, nor can I post to a blogging service while simultaniously uploading to Flickr (Dmitry, are you paying attention?). And I cannot use a web interface anywhere to post to all my blogs simultaniously. I would also like to be able to have all my blogs automaticly draw their content, via RSS perhaps, from any of my other blogs.. or any other content I specify.
Think of it… I save a bookmark in Del.icio.us or a picture in Flickr, my MSN Spaces blog picks it up automaticly, whereafter my other blogs or sites, or whatever, either pick it up via RSS, or are posted to from MSN Spaces, or whatever other blog or content source.
We need some kind of web-service that does all of this. An RSS router of sorts. Hmm.. could Bizztalk do this? (this is the bit where I hope other people at GWB read my posts!)
