Cross-Posting from Movable Type to LiveJournal

Natania told me the other day that some of our friends weren’t getting updates to my blog via their RSS readers, and I realized that it might be due to the fact that they’re still trying to follow my ancient LiveJournal. So I finally got off my ass and set up Movable Type to cross-post.

This was a little harder than I thought, however, because every Google search I did for “cross post movable type livejournal” or “posting movable type livejournal” or any other such combination resulted in a bunch of old and outdated plugins. I didn’t feel like banging my head against a Perl script tonight, so they were right out.

Luckily, on the second Google SERP, I discovered CrossPoster from Movalog.

I’m not one hundred percent sure what Movalog is, but the author, Arvind Satyanarayan, knows his MT. Lots of cool plugins, not the least of which is CrossPoster, which was easy to configure, easy to use, and totally made my evening.

  1. Oh gosh, I assumed you weren’t still posting here. I didn’t realize this blog’s LJ RSS feed wasn’t feeding anymore.
    Glad that’s sorted out.

    Yeah, I wasn’t too diligent about it, because I’ve been neglecting my blogging duties. The best feed to be using is the one. I’m cross-posting to LJ again, but they’re only partials.
