    I have a large quantity of articles that I want to import to my blog. Sitting there and posting by hand is too time consuming.

    Any program or script to auto-import these in for me?

    Assuming you're blogging on wordpress you should have a look at the WP plugin called :
    CSV Importer

    Eventually you'll need to write some winautomation scripting to put your text file content into a formatted CSV file before.

    Or you can probably do everithing with winautomation...
    If your articles are small you can probably just do it with Imacros (importing a CSV file also)

    Do you really have tons or articles ???

    you could try the plugin autoblog feeder. Its a little quirky, but it works when you get the right format down.

    I can think of 3 plugins that will take your articles and post them either all at once or randomly. It's been a while, so I'm not sure of their exact names. I'll list them in order of importance.

    Slick Autoposter
    PLR to Wordpress
    Zip Poster

    All I have is affiliate links. Know of these from a while back, Slick Autposter does a lot and definitely is the best. It can even hand csv feeds or data feeds. But will handle your .txt files easily.

    The other 2 had some limitation....can't remember.

    All I have is affiliate links. Don't want to post them here so I'll send them to you via PM....don't feel obligated to use the aff link....just don't have time to look around for the original links.....had to dig for these :)

    Good luck
