Integrate an RSS feed into my journal

Integrate an RSS feed into my journal

Short, concise description of the idea
I have a delicious feed. I'd like to integrate the feed from it into my journal, as if they were normal posts.

Full description of the idea
I also have a facebook status feed. It'd be nice if that also added posts to my journal. I'm sure that some people with flickr accounts would like their feed from there to also appear as posts on their journal.

There are a lot of kludges to make this possible. But it would be very nice if LJ could handle it itself.

Even if it didn't do it automatically, but instead gave you a list of entries and allowed you to select ones to repost as journal entries, that would be something.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Post in multiple places. Receive comments in one.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Have to watch out for that bug where an entire RSS feed suddenly reposts itself

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Take an incoming feed and create a post for each item.
