More MySpace stuff

Posted 23 August 2006 in atom, blog, cross-post, feed, and myspace

Ugh, I'm disappointed that I'm picking up blogging again by first posting about MySpace. First of all, I've fixed up the MySpace blog poster a little more - it now redirects the user to their blog after posting. Also, it's designed exclusively for posting short blurbs and linking to your real blog. Check it out.

Next up, I've essentially released the MySpace blog feed generator. Here's the scoop: MySpace has terrible feed support. So the feed generator goes out, rips apart the page, reassembles it in the Atom 1.0 feed format, and gives you the results. You can subscribe in your feed reader of choice, although I've included subscription links for the people using Google Reader, My Yahoo!, or Bloglines. It's a pretty sweet deal. I'll make it available after I'm satisfied that it's user-friendly enough (hopefully by week's end).

With those projects out of the way, I think I'm going to move to something more interesting to me. Details to follow.
