## Blogging from Emacs

Posted by me on Monday, the 5th day of June, anno domini 2006 at 10:24 PM, local time.

So, I’m testing a simple method of blogging from emacs by way of my command line blogging script. I think it should work pretty good. I guess we will find out. Now, one thing I was reading about somewhere was making it easier to link things. Essentially, my command line blogging script can be made to preprocess the body of the post to make it easier to do italics, bold, etc., as well as linking to arbitrary websites, or wikipedia, or other random websites based on keywords. I should also fix up some keywords to map to category numbers so I don’t have to figure out what the category number is for the category I wish to blog in!

Plan for preprocessing then is:
*bold*
<b>bold</b>
_underline_
<u>underline</u>
/italics/
<i>italics</i>

Some initial keyword/arg sets will be:
wp:topic
for a given topic at wikipedia (no topic links to wikipedia itself).
