Idea: Blog Collaborator-Aggregator

This morning I was thinking about how more people should blog (more on that later). Then I was thinking that maybe I should build something so that it’s even easier for people to create their own ApeJet powered blogging service. Then I realized that there’s really no point. Blogger (and others) does such a good job that there’s no point in me trying to do the same. Then for some reason, I was thinking that it would be cool to have a program that would read a bunch of blog feeds and turn them into one blog. There may be some aggregators out there already that do this, but all of the ones I’ve seen so separate the entries by author. I want something that results in a blog that looks like BoingBoing or Slashdot but that is created by different bloggers potentially posting in different systems (blogger, apejet, typepad, etc…). I’m going to do some research to see if I can find a web app that already works like this. If I can’t find one, I may just have to build it myself.
