What I would like is have the ability for Connections to pull an RSS feed from my blog and repost it in my Connections blog.  I would set up a feed just for a particular Connections community and only send items to that feed that I think are releavnt in the context of the Connections community.

I already have my own blog and prefer for it to be the collection point for as much of the content I create as I can.  A blog inside of something like Connections as a publishing point for me, but it could be useful to a Connections community I'm in if I can feed it certain postings automatically.

This functionality is already available in other social networking spaces...Flog on Facebook, Virb has it built in.  There are probably some others out there too.

Hi Scott, I want to make sure I understand your request. Do you want not all, but some (maybe by tag), of your entries to populate your Lotus Connections blog? Do you want to continue to write entries into your Connections blog, or truly maintain one blog? I realize this isn't 100% what you asked for, but I did want to let you know that in your profile, you can add a link to an external blog, and that will redirect from the business card and profile links. We are looking at doing aggregation, as you mention though.

If I would add an idea, it will be better to gather popular SNS and blogs in each reagions. Otherwise, it is not so friendly internationally than westerners' world.
