The BlogBridge Service enhance the performance and capabilities of the BlogBridge Desktop client. It operates behind the scenes and quietly. Of course it doesn’t do much by itself (yet) so for you to get value out of it you need to first install and run the BlogBridge Desktop client.
Once you’ve done that, all that’s left is to enter your email and password into BlogBridge Desktop client and see it’s capabilities magically enhanced. From then on the Service is just sitting there behind the scenes, chugging along and doing its thing. Note that if you are not connected to the web (e.g. you are at 30,000 feet on an airplane) you can still use BlogBridge Desktop to read whatever content it previously downloaded, but of course it won’t be able to reach the service.
Step by Step
- Install BlogBridge Desktop
- Create a BlogBridge Service account

If you haven’t yet, follow the download instructions to get BlogBridge Desktop.
Look at your email inbox for the email you specified above. You will receive a confirmation email with a link to click to verify the account and you are off and running. If you don’t receive it, check your spam filter as it often gets caught there.
Ok you are almost there. Depending on what kind of computer you are using (Macintosh, Windows, Linux) locate the BlogBridge Desktop client you installed in step one and launch the program.
Click on the menu called Tools and the “BlogBridge Service” command to configure it. At the top of the dialog box you will see a place to enter the email and password you used when signing up for the service. Enter them there. Confirm by clicking OK.
To prove that you’ve been successful, click on the Tools menu again, and the “Synchronize Now” command. When that command completes, your collection of subscriptions and feeds are safely tucked away inside BlogBridge Service.
