(OK... I've completely nicked this idea from Philipp as he's already doing it but I thought other people here might not have realised they could do this.)

1. Go to FriendFeed.com and edit/add services:

i.e. friendfeed.com/?editservices=1

2. Add a Blog.
3. Enter the Blog URL as: blogoscoped.com/forum/
*** THE NEXT TWO STEPS ARE IMPORTANT ***
4. Check the "This blog has multiple authors" checkbox.
5. Enter the name you use on the forum.
************************************
6. Click the "Import Blog" button.

Whenever you post a new thread to the Google Blogoscoped forum, it will appear in your FriendFeed!

(Note: This will also include threads where you were the first one to comment on a blog post.)

Edit: e.g. friendfeed.com/e/a15d17b1-6eb6 ...

Would be better if they'd offer a free-style "add RSS" form so that it won't read "X posted five blog posts on Google Blogoscoped Forum" but "X posted on the Google Blogoscoped Forum" or "... posted 3 threads ..." or something.

Hmm, that seems to be a reason speaking against including replies to posts in the RSS feed...

Agreed. They're making the same mistake as Google Blog Search by assuming that all (unclassified) feeds are blogs.

I guess so. These are also listed in the user's page as "was blogged" which doesn't differentiate between threads that were blogged about and threads which were created by commenting on an existing blog post.

That's pretty cool. I was just thinking the other day that Philip should talk to the guys at friendfeed and do something like this. :)

Somehow my linking of GB to friendfeed is not working

Am I doing it right?

Rohit, that's correct. It will only import threads you start rather than all your comments though.

I started [GAME] thread but that didn't appeared

Hmm. Maybe it's picked up the wrong feed. You could try entering blogoscoped.com/forum/rss.xml in the URL field instead I guess.

I added blogoscoped.com/forum/rss.xml and saved it

on re-editing it its converted to blogoscoped.com/forum/ only
that means I'm on the right track

Hows your feeds working?

OK something's wrong.
now I can see 2 posts on my name and one was posted on "March 11, 2008". The day i joined FF

Weird. I'm guessing FriendFeed caches feeds, so even those that item is no longer in the feed, they added it retrospectively. See how it goes now you know it's pulling in posts correctly.

This thread is locked as it's old... but you can create a new thread in the forum.
