WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

The idea here is to have a site (any site) which somehow has the user's WordPress user-name and login (maybe as part of a sister site) to allow him to write a post on his own blog. The idea I have now is basically a simple form sent (perhaps with curl or socket) to the user's blog admin_ajax.php, even though it is strictly not an AJAX call.

Are there any other methods which I could try or is there something built into WordPress itself already?

WordPress supports XML-RPC protocol for such things. That is how desktop blogging clients work.

Alternatively you can try to set it up via post by email.

Thanks! This is what I am looking for! – Extrakun Sep 21 '10 at 11:12

You can enable guest posting, and give then username and password for guest account. It is security efficient way. Also you can keep an eye before post publishing.
