...and TypePad too, please.

well here is my question. if we could convert these all to pdf? couldn't we have a plugin that made pDF versions of each entry, (assuming you wnated this, or each week), and then distribute them in a similar manner to Howard Dean's text-blog idea.

or you could just do what mimi smartypants did on diaryland and get a book contract.

Just give these nice strangers your LiveJournal username and password, and... hey, wait a minute!

Type pad is M.T. is it not?

A pdf convert would be cool, as long as it represented what your sight looks like, as opposed to just the text of mtentry and comments. If you just wanted mtentry text couldn't you do something with the export file?

I've managed to get a PDF of my MT blog generated using this... http://www.fpdf.org/

It takes a little PHP coding and some MySQL queries but it isn't too hard.

LJ-based sites export CSV or XML files for your entries... what does MT do?

The lj_nifty thread on Blogbinders covered the giving your username and password pretty well.

It might be easy to PDF your weblog as it looks on the web with Mac OS X's ability to print to PDF.

MT's Import/Export exports in a particular custom format, or you can republish your site in any format for which you care to make a template, or you can make a Perl script that uses MT's object API to do whatever you like.
