Much of my blogging these days has been taken over by the links and quick comments I have been posting to the del.icio.us social bookmarks manager. So I decided to completely mesh what I’m doing @ del.icio.us with my blog.
The integration process is actually fairly simple with the help of the experimental daily blog posting interface found in del.icio.us (@/settings/USER/daily). Basically, you enter the XML-RPC interface entry point from your blog, some user credentials and the process will deposit into your blog any links posted to your del.icio.us account in the last 24 hours — complete with extended comments and tags. Nice!
Much better than the feed splicing I have been utilizing with FeedBurner — although that is admittedly cool too.
Now, if I could find a mechanism to auto summarize the daily links into relevant titles for each post, instead of the standard ‘links for yyyy-mm-dd’ title template available now, I’d be delighted!
