So as maybe two of you might know, I log a lot of websites I find on my del.icio.us. For actually quite a while I have been marking the links I find that other people would like, and that I want to share, with a specific tag. Now that I'm hooking my lj up proper to my website, I'm going to link my del.icio.us up to my livejournal. This is where you come in.

Links on del.icio.us consist of a link of text, a very short description, and a list of tags which describe the link. On average I post about two or three links a day. There are two ways I could link my livejournal up to delicious. Either each link gets its own entry, which would be a tiny two line entry once or twice a day with the tags from del.icio.us turned into lj tags, or once a week I generate a big post with all my links from the previous week in it.

There needs to be an option for "I have no idea what the hell your words mean."

i need to get better at writing technical things in non-technical speak. something to work on.

I log websites i find ("links") that i think people will like on a website called del.icio.us. I am writing a piece of code that will grab the links i save on delicious and post them to my journal. The question is whether each link gets its own LJ post, or if the program should make one big post per week with all the websites i've saved in one post.

my links are actually infrequent enough that one post a day would be a bit silly because it would only have one or two links at most. if i'm going to make that many posts I might as well give each link its own post.
