All Blogging APIs Suck!

The only thing worse than any given blogging API is any of the other blogging APIs.  Somehow, they all manage to be worse than all of the others.  You'd think that would be impossible, but not so.

For a start, the Blogger and MetaWeblog APIs are based on XML-RPC, which sucks.  The Atom API doesn't use XML-RPC, because it sucks, but does use XML, which sucks, and Atom itself, which sucks.

Why isn't there a JSON blogging API?  Whatever the reason, there soon will be.

But I'll support MetaWeblog anyway.  Even though it sucks, it sucks in a way that is easy to implement in Python.  As long as nothing goes wrong, anyway.
