Blogs provides a set of feeds and service documents that implement the Atom Publishing Protocol. You can use these publishing APIs in your applications to interact with the Blogs application programmatically.

The publishing APIs require authentication. When interacting with blogs that you own or author, you can retrieve even more detailed information about the blog. If you want your application to solely read existing information from a blog, see Using the Blogs subscription feeds instead.

The Blogs publishing APIs do not document URL strings for most of the resources; instead your program should follow the links from the service document to a particular feed, and then use the links in the Atom entries contained in the feed to update or delete or comment on an individual entry.
