Adding Delicious Daily Links to Blogger

After reading a very interesting article on how to increase traffic to your blog by Steve Rubel I really wanted to get point 2 working.

Adding Del.ici.ous Daily Links to Blogger

There's a good article on how to do it for typepad here in the comments there are instructions on how to do it for blogger.

Step 1 - Go to your delicious account.

Step 2 - Click on the link on the upper right that says Settings

Step 3 - In the right column, under Experimental (and I stress experimental), click on the link that says "daily blog posting"

Step 4 - You get a set of fields that look like this:

Daily Delicious Post (or whatever you want)

Your Blogger username.

Your Blogger password.

Your blogspot url

Hour in GMT that you want to have this post.

Your Blogger blog ID. See how to find yours here

This doesn’t work in Blogger. Put any number here.

Click “Submit Query”. You should be setup to post daily to your blog.
