As you can see, I’m posting to my actual livejournal, as opposed to the feed. The reason I set up the feed was solely to use iBlog with my .Mac account. iBlog was one of the “free” pieces of software, so in other words, using it would partially justify paying for .Mac for this year. The other reason was to keep a copy of my journal entries on my hard drive.
What I completely didn’t think about before starting this convoluted setup was that there might be LJ clients for OS X. Right now I’m using XJournal, which uses the Safari engine to display stuff, and interfaces with Address Book cards. My only complaint thus far is that it doesn’t appear to be able to display my merged friends page; it only does one friend at a time. It also grabs my current music from iTunes automatically.
As for the me being stupid part, it seems like this is probably a better way for me to do this, since it interfaces directly with my LiveJournal. I will have to go and backdate a bunch of my K5 entries, just so they’re out there.
In summary: this is a lot more direct than uploading to my .Mac account and having the feed on LiveJournal. It also puts my comments in the same place as my journal. My apologies to
I think I may switch to using this Xjournal, even after all of the effort I put in with the iBlog templates. Any recommendations either way?
