Blog posts from RSS feed

I've set up an RSS feed on our web server with the intention of using it across several blogs.  

What i'd ideally like to be able to do is post something on my website, and have it displayed in several other places, such as blogger, wordpress, twitter...etc.

I've got it working with twitter using an app called twitterfeed which is working great. Does anyone know of anything similar to this for the other blogging platforms?

I know it's possible to have the RSS feed in a side-bar on blogger, but ideally I'd like each item in the feed to be an actual post on the blog.

Thanks.

Depends on how you want to display it. If you're looking for a quick, easy way to get this on your site, you could just take the RSS feed from your blog and port that into your Web site via a service like feedburner or feedsweep.

FeedSweep is quick and easy & and pretty reliable.

You can pick the title you want, number of articles, width, to include dates, customize the appearance, etc. So you can format it to look like the rest of your site.

Then all you have to do is generate the code and embed it on your site.

Thanks for your reply BMilneSLO,

I've seen a few utilities which work that way round, but is their anything that will take a feed from our web server that will re-format it and post it on several other blog sites like blogger, wordpress and such like all at the same time?

Hey Tricky,
Thanks for using Experts Exchange.
I think the best way to accomplish this, posting to multiple blogs and even microblogs and social media sites, would be to use one of these types of third-party Blog editors/apps/add-ons to do your posting ...

Blog It!, for example, is a Facebook app that lets you send the same post to multiple blogs (TypePad, Tumblr, Blogger, WP, etc.). That also solves the Facebook posting issue, or you could just add your RSS feed to your notes in Facebook.

Write to My Blog, as the name applies, is another multi-post editor, supporting Blogger, WP and similar sites.

And Ping.fm is pretty cool as it also supports Flickr and MySpace.
