Duplicating offsite blog in my WP.com blog?

  1. Is there a way to either redirect my wp.com blog to an outside blog, or configure the wp.com blog to automatically update based on an outside blog?

  2. There are no redirects. I imagine this is because it would encourage sploggers to set up a million duplicate accounts all forwarding to the same site.

    There's also no automated way of cross-posting, so to cut down on the copy-and-pasting I recommend using an editor to post to multiple blogs (I use the Performancing extension for Firefox, but there are many others such as w.bloggar and Windows Live Writer.)

  3. BlogDesk is also an excellent offline editor. It's free, optimized for WordPress, very easy to use and you can use it to publish to multiple blogs simultaneously. http://www.blogdesk.org/en/index.htm

  4. Is there a way to [...] configure the wp.com blog to automatically update based on an outside blog

    Sure is. Have a plugin on your outside blog that sends the post to your WP.com blog via XML-RPC just as a 3rd party editor would do.

    I dunno if a plugin exists currently to do that or not, but it doesn't sound all that hard to code.
