GreenFlame Blog Portal

So I’m waiting for my hosting provider to turn on a few things so I can install Movable Type how i want it and I start thinking about how nice it would be to have all the blogs I read on a single web page with their latest headlines. So I’m thinking RSS/XML aggregation but on a web page I can access from anywhere in the world not just using a reader on my iBook.

The result of this is the: GreenFlame Blog Portal. A quick bit of HTML and PHP tinkering with the help of zFeeder and it’s all done.

(I know that MT has a nice plug-in for doing this sort of thing but I was bored – and it may be weeks (months) before I get MT up and going to my liking)
