Recently, I started surfing blogs on Blog Explosion. Through this, I am logging into blogger and commenting on various people's blogs. However, when blogging in with Blogger, it points people back to this blog, as opposed to the blog where I do most of my writing, Orient Lodge

If you stumble across me that way, please stop by at Orient Lodge and say hello.

Today, I just got an email from some friends about the rebirth of Democracy Forum. The new Democracy Forum is on blogger too, so people may stumble across me that way. As with Blog Explosion, if you find me through Democracy Forum, please stop by at Orient Lodge and say hello.

What FeedBurner does, amongst other things is to convert atom feeds into RSS feeds. So, in theory, should be a valid feed for either RSS or Atom.

I'm going to kick this around a bit to see how it looks in different places.

Update:Well, using FeedBurner, I am getting my Blogger blog imported into Drupal (using the RSS feed) as well as into LiveJournal. I hope it will show up on Yahoo soon as well. I did find that I have to check SmartFeed and Convert Format Burner
