Reblinks Posting

I've been using Reblinks to post all my blog entires this week. I was also able to get it working with Wordpress. Not sure if I can get it working with Blogger, as it does not support MetaWeblogAPI. BloggerAPI is incomplete and Atom API is way too complicated. I'm testing other platforms that support MetaWeblogAPI

The Year in RSS

I'm just catching up on my reading over the last month. Marshall Kirkpatrick on ReadWriteWeb writes 2007: The Year in RSS where he enumerates the big events in RSS-land 2007.

  1. Facebook Introduced Millions of People to Syndication
  2. Google Bought Feedburner
  3. Google Reader Takes the Lead
  4. Feed Services Began to Tackle Prioritization
  5. Cross Platform
  6. Yahoo! Releases Pipes
  7. Feed Publishing Continued to Expand

Great list! I think he left out the introduction of the RSS profile, which is already making life easier for publishers and developers.

NewsGator, FeedDemon are Free!

Greg Reinacker just announced that NewsGator Outlook, FeedDemon and all the NewsGator clients are now totally free! The NOT-FREE thing about FeedDemon has always been the one point that has stopped me from using it. Sounds like Nick has a new user.

Sorry Rmail Users
I just wanted to apologize to all Rmail users. I sold the site to NBC and they rebranded it SendMeRSS. I'm no longer involved in the project.
