Blog posts firehoses

Three more firehoses to get all blog posts from the following platforms:

  1. blogger posts, through their changes.xml;
  2. tumblr posts, through superfeedr‘s track feature;
  3. WordPress.com posts, through their firehose feature.

While the first feed is free of charge, the other two have an attached price tag.

Also worth investigating is Paul Kinlan’s faux firehose for blogger.

Drinking from the firehose

Some firehoses to drink read from, other than twitter’s:

  1. Google Buzz, through their activity firehose API methods;
  2. FriendFeed, using their real-time updates methods.

While the first works via pubsubhubhub, the second uses a combination of long polling and a cursor that helps you make subsequent calls.
