    Hi guys,

    I just wanted to say thank you to the BHW community you have been a huge asset for my business these last couple of months.

    My question is about automating the blogging process.

    I have about 30 web 2.0's that I update pretty often and embed my $$ site links within. This process is extremely time consuming and can take sometimes 5 hours to complete all of the sites. It's only natural for me to seek other ways to automate this process. One of the web-sites that I operate is a domain that uses the wordpress platform. I use the WP Robot plugin to automate this site and it works fantastic. But it's ONLY for WP sites that allow the use plugins. As most of you know standard free WP sites do not allow the use of plugins- herein lies the problem.

    Does anybody know of a way to automate this process or of a 3rd party application that I could use that would be similar to WP robot for the free web 2.0 properties?

    you could write a macro etc or get someone to write you a bot , probably not that expensive depending how simple/complex you need it to be.

    check out posterous, not completely automated, but can be much quicker than doing it by hand

    could just schedule emails from your systemto posterous at certain time. or i think it maybe has a timer as well?

    no ability to auto scrape for a post though...

    You could try to use OnlyWire. I remember I used to use some plugin for it and it would automatically post to your OnlyWire account which posts to a bunch of different places quickly.
