Distributing blogs via PDF, e-mail: Last week, I first heard about this site, rss2pdf.com, that converts RSS or OPML feeds into a PDF file.
At that time, I could only think of reasons I’d never need it, but I bookmarked it for when I had a few minutes to try it out, which I just did.
I still can’t think how I’d use it, but I know people who have someone print their e-mail out for them who might find it useful (or, at least their administrative assistants might). Does anyone know of a service similar to this that could convert a set number of blog posts into an html/e-mail format? I can see how that might be helpful to those who want to subscribe to a blog via a daily or weekly or other regular recurring form of e-mail rather than an RSS feed. (Yes, I’ve heard those people exist.) I think that many blogging platforms offer the optioin of receiving individual posts via e-mail – Userland’s Manila — the platform I use via via Userland’s hosting service, allows that. What I’m envisioning, however, is more like rss2pdf.com, except the RSS feed flows into a pre-designed e-mail template. Maybe the folks who have registered the domain, rss2email.com are working on something like that.
