Newsletters and Linkblogging

I subscribe to a decent number of newsletters, like Python Weekly, that are basically curated collections of links. I want to do more linkblogging and these are great resources but for the following problems:

  • There’s not an easy way to pry out and blockquote text for individual links
  • The embedded links flow through tracking redirectors, so it’s hard to know the ultimate destination
  • Linkpost creation needs an easy way to do some type of via attribution

Sounds like time to get on the hacking bandwagon. One potentially useful hack is that I’m pushing a number of newsletters into a Feedbin mail address and reading them there. I wonder what they look like when grabbed out of the Feedbin api?
