Link blogging

For a while now I’ve been wanting to set up one of those fancy del.icio.us posting things, whereby links I’ve added to my account during the day get posted to this blog each evening. But I use my del.icio.us account for a lot more than just topics that are covered here, and I don’t want to clutter it up. Nor did I want to have to switch between accounts to specify which links get posted where.

So I was very pleased to discover (via Simon Willison, and a twitter post from Drew) Nat Downe’s snafflr script, which will check a specified list of delicious accounts and post links with a certain tag to another account. And so it is that so long as I tag items correctly, a cron job will find the links I want to add to this blog, and once a day they’ll be posted for me using delicious’ own blogging support.

We’ll see in a few hours whether it’s worked!
