Tomboy Blogposter is a Tomboy plugin to post notes to a blog from for instance Wordpress, Blogger or LiveJournal, or (hopefully) any other AtomPub enabled website.
This plugin requires Tomboy 0.10 or later.
Download/Install in Ubuntu
In Ubuntu Jaunty or later, all you need to do to install is to install tomboy-blogposter from the official repositories.
If you got the binary, you need to put the dll in your $HOME/.tomboy/addins directory, and then activate the plugin in the Tomboy preferences.
The source version uses autotools. To build it, move to the folder where you downloaded the code, and execute
$ tar xzf tomboy-blogposter-0.4.4.tar.gzThis will install the plugin for your current user. If you only want to install the plugin globally instead (for all users), instead of executing
$ cd tomboy-blogposter-0.4.4
$ make local-install
make local-install, become root and run

Finding the URL
When you add an account, it will ask you for your AtomPub Service or Collection URL. Here's a short guide on how to find it:
On Wordpress, the URL you want to use is <blog_url>/wp-app.php/posts Note, though, that you need to visit your Wordpress admin panel, and under Settings -> Writing enable the Atom Publishing Protocol before this will work.
For Blogger, you can find the URL by viewing the source to your Blogger blog: it's the address in the <link> tag that has the rel attribute set to service.post. It follows the template http://www.blogger.com/feeds/<blog_id>/posts/default. My blog has id 4164605321218185513, which means my Collection document is http://www.blogger.com/feeds/4164605321218185513/posts/default.
On LiveJournal, the URL is http://www.livejournal.com/interface/atomapi/<username>/post
Anywhere else, you should view the source code, and look near the top for a line that looks like <link rel="service.post" type="application/atom+xml" title="<User-friendly label>" href="<collection_url>" />
