Testing API changes.

This morning I updated’s XML-RPC posting support to the MetaWeblog API, which allows uploading photos to your hosted microblog. If you’re using MarsEdit to post to, edit your “System API” in MarsEdit’s blog settings to “MetaWeblog API” instead of “Blogger API”.

More text here to see if it truncates.

Test post. Today we’re adding Facebook cross-posting to Facebook support is now built in, just like Twitter cross-posting, and can be configured for a microblog hosted on or any external blog with a feed.’s cross-posting naturally works with long-form content or microblog posts. For longer posts, it includes the title with a link back to your blog. For microblog posts, it sends the entire text to Facebook. also parses your post HTML looking for img tags, downloads the photo and attaches it to the Facebook post. This means that microblog posts with photos look great on Facebook, but the source content is still on your own web site. It works really well with the app for iOS.

I feel like is starting to pick up steam. I’m looking forward to rolling out more improvements before the public launch.
