Posting to my blog via google chat

This is pretty cool guys, the post you are reading right now is being typed to a new contact I have on my google chat contact list: [email protected] And indeed they are instant-messaing-fing the web. Lots of cool available widgets that integrate into your account such as google calendar, todo list, basecamp, blogger, twitter and wordpress.

How does it work? I click on the user to start a new chat, a menu appears where I choose which widget to work with. WordPress is not bundled in of course, so you need to login in to and search for the plugin, then give your XML-RPC URL along with the credentials to post and follow the easy instructions from the bot.

In general I have found several cool bots for google reader that I love. There is the gTalk badge that you see on the bottom right of this blog where you can start chatting with me if I am online, and also the language translating service that helps me improve my spanish, french and dutch (yes, dutch :).

Here are some links:


gTalk badge:
available for google apps hosted domains as well: – make sure you replace DOMAIN with your own domain.

  1. December 12, 2012 at 6:11 amWith the increase in the nmuebr of users of facebook since last year, facebook has become over populated and the newsfeed algorithm went through several changes. My newsfeed consists of posts which are liked by friends. Spam links and ofcourse troll comics everywhere. I don’t want this stuff on my newsfeed daily. I want it to be less polluted. How can I change the settings?
