A bizarre name to be sure, but it saved me a ton of work.
The task at hand was to make an easy way for the golf group to post updates to their website for rain info, meetings, etc. without messing with the HTML and web pages on the site. I will be setting up a blog for them but we wanted the info to go into the actual website and not make the members go to the blog for the info.
Google to the rescue (again).
I had heard of Feedburner but never thought I needed to use it. But I discovered that Google now owns Feedburner. Great! I didn’t need to register for yet another account on the web. So I logged in and added FluteBrarian to the feed list. After a little searching of the help files, I discovered a “publicize” tab and a service called BuzzBoost.
After filling out a few customization fields, my script code was generated and I was able to plug it directly into the HTML for the page. Couldn’t have been easier (unless I had discovered it sooner 😉
