 The following is a tutorial on posting to your blog on MSN Spaces using the Flickr.
  1. Create a Space on http://spaces.msn.com if you don't have one

  2. Go to 'Edit Your Space->Settings->Email Publishing'

  3. Turn on Email Publishing (screenshot below)

  4. Choose a secret word (screenshot below)

  5. Create an account on Yahoo or Flickr if you don't have one

  6. Go to the "Add a Weblog" page at http://flickr.com/blogs_add_metaweblogapi.gne

  7. Specify the API end point as https://storage.msn.com/StorageService/MetaWeblog.rpc. The user name is the name of your space (e.g. I use 'carnage4life' because the URL of my space is http://spaces.msn.com/members/carnage4life). The password is the secret word you selected when you turned on Email Publishing on your space.

  8. Click "Next", then Click "All Done"

  9. Go ahead and create blog posts on your space directly from Flickr. You can see the test post I made to my space from Flickr here.

PS: Thanks to the Yahoo! folks on the Flickr team who helped debug the issues that prevented this from working when we first shipped our MetaWeblog API support.

Superb article - Flickr's ability to post directly to MSN Spaces was a bugbear for me, so this posting makes me happy. :-)
