    Hello. I dont even know if i am in the right place for this question, please be kind if not. I made a windows desktop application to browse in a single window and fast, many declared blogger.com blogs. Now i want to make my program read also wordpress blogs, meaning posts (latest posts is ok). I am using an old programming interface, vb 6.0, so without any activex object or other plugin i managed to create a very stable app just by using only http gets and posts to the google blogger api and it works so smoothly. My question is can i do something like this with wordpress blogs? All i am hearing is wordpress plugins, wordpress plugins, php examples blah blah... causing me headaches. I dont need all this, just http URLs without even an authentication cause all i want is to read public posts, nothing strange, nothing illegal. Is there httl urls to read directly wordpress blog posts like with the blogger api?
    p/s if not, please give me a start on how to implement in my program the way of reading also wordpress blog posts (the latest ones is fine). My program posts also copies of selected posts to a blogger blog, thats fine, right now i dont need to post to a wordpress blog, just read from there.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that to read from blogger blogs i need an api key which is intergrated to my app inside the code, so there must be something like this with wordpress apis. Please help me on this too.

    Examples that i am looking for:

    In blogger api to work with a blog, i need a blog-id. With the following url i am getting that id, no auth needed, just a fixed one-time api key built-in my application:


    Another example,

    In blogger api to get posts from a blog, i am using this type of url and waiting for a response:


    So you see i need something like the above gets to read from a wordpress document, please respond that this can be done! ;-)

    You can just use rss feeds and read them thru your browser. Why do you need to use an application?

    Because i am selling this application ;-) and some clients asked me for the program to read also wordpress posts. You see, the tons of blogger blogs is not enough and the wordpress is a rising community, thats for sure.
