I have been playing around with something for Benzolio.com. I have wanted a good central location where you can get to my blogs conveniently. I think I have found a way, now. Its in preliminary development; I would call this version second build alpha. I have only written some simple CSS and am only importing a limited set of tags from the various RSS feeds, but I am pretty pumped to have my moblog.uk entries appearing together with my livejournal and Flickr entries.
Live Test: BenzoRSS Version
a.03
,and yes, I am aware that my CSS doesn`t look pretty in IE6. I assume its pretty rotten in any verion of IE, but I think it looks good in a Mozilla-based browser like FireFox! [Update: I fixed the css to work with with IE.]

Oops!, I had a dead link, didn`t I, Mandy? Good guess, but benzolio.com is still my wordpress blog, which I never did get to properly real-time synch with my other blogs. That is why I started writing from the ground up instead of trying to use anengine that is not specifically designed to do what I want to do.

Thanks, George! I`ll be putting a full layout and comment system in eventually, too, but probably not until after the holiday season.

Haha, Eric! Well, I do not like that IE pretends to support CSS, but then goes ahead and ignores some rules, misinterperates others, and the only way around it is to write bad CSS code that will be doubly misinterperated to get what you want. It is all so confusing! (...and that is just one part of IE I do not like.)

Thanks, 540air! I appreciate the encouragement from you and George. (And, thanks to Brian aka NORTHnorth for the voicemail.)

Eric, it could not have been said any clearer. :P

You're welcome :)

Is it difficult to create, or are you thinking along the lines of rolling this idea out as a product for others?

540air, there are a lot of tricky little things to get it working. I plan on making the Benzo RSS Aggregator Interface Device (BRAID) available once I have made it more robust and compatible. I will probably be doing alpha testing in January. I will be using it on Benzolio.Com, but I am developing it with others in mind as well. :)

BTW, EricWithCheese, I am trying to work on not h8ing IE, so I made the basic CSS compatible with IE, and in the process, improved my filter that pulls out the image data, which made BenzoRSS's styling options more predictable, robust, and compatible with more photoblog image RSS feeds.
