Hi Everyone,
I will be downloading and installing BlogEngine this evening on my server and wanted to know if there was a web service written already to allow someone the ability to post to their blog remotely via an application. I am looking at creating an app that will allow users to add to their blogs. I might end up using the Multi-BlogEngine for it but being it is based off of BlogEngine I thought I would post here about it. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Not webservices per se, but a couple things to check out - I haven't tried them myself, it'd be up to you.

Using the same API as Windows Live Writer

Driving the posting form directly (it's not pretty, but gets the job done). The article is geared towards LiveJournal, but it can be easily modified for others.
