Blog Interchange Format?

  • The Blog Interchange Format is an xml specification for the purpose of converting between blogging applications.
    It is unreasonable to expect every blogging application to be able to upgrade/convert/import posts from every other application as this requires custom code for every blogging application. A blogging interchange format would mean every blogging app would only need to be able to read/write to this format to be able to import/export to and from any blogging app which supports this format.

  • Let’s call it “RSS”.

    But really, I think the Atom API pretty much eliminates the need for this, and to some extent the simpler APIs.

    RSS/ATOM is for syndication, and doesn’t take into account different features of blogs.
    For example to change from MT to wordpress you will want all the sections, the users, the comments, the trackbacks all in one file.
