			<<To use it, you must first be a registered Blogger user, and have a site.
			<<The parameters are as follows:
				<<username -- Your Blogger username.
				<<password -- Your Blogger password.
				<<blogId -- The ID of your Blogger site (a.k.a. Blog). You can get the ID of your Blog from the URL you use to edit it in the browser. It's the number after blogid= in the URL.

This listing is for code that runs in the OPML Editor environment. I created these listings because I wanted the search engines to index it, so that when I want to look up something in my codebase I don't have to use the much slower search functionality in my object database. Dave Winer.
