IFTTT test

I have a couple of blogs scattered all around, and I decided it’s time to consolidate them. For a long time I didn’t want to; I preferred to silo all my interests. But you know what … I don’t really mind or care anymore. I am as much writer as knitter as apparel enthusiast as (terrible) photographer as (better) cook, etc etc etc. So from now on, I’m going to … let it all hang out, I suppose?

IFTTT is pretty good for this sort of thing but it doesn’t have a Dreamwidth module, and I still want to maintain my DW blog, so it’ll have to start from there via RSS feed and post to WordPress. There are two irritations: it doesn’t transfer tags, and the RSS feed adds an ugly line about the comment count, which I can’t get rid of. So those things, I will still have to manually update, but it’s better than nothing. DW can also automatically crosspost to LJ, which is nice. Anyway, this is the first post testing IFTTT functionality, so pardon my dust, etc. Much to do ahead as I tweak the WordPress.
