Earlier this summer we launched a few tools to make it easier for developers to create new apps for WordPress.com . Starting today, you can integrate your WordPress.com blog with Feedfabrik and Empire Avenue . Turn Your Blog Into a Book Have you ever wanted to publish your own book, or a collection of your favorite blog posts? Feedfabrik makes it easy to convert your WordPress.com blog into a book format, and even allows you to customize the cover design and book contents. You can order a hard copy of your book, or a digital PDF edition. To try it out, head over to Feedfabrik , choose Bookfabrik, then select “I’m on WordPress.com.” Receive a 10% discount on all September orders with the code “WORDPRESS-INTRO”. Grow Your Social Capital Online Empire Avenue is a Social Stock Market, where your social networking activity and engagement earn you virtual currency and determine your virtual share price. It also helps you discover new people and brands, and allows you to invest virtual currency in their profiles by buying shares on the Social Stock Market. Along the way you’ll have a bit of fun, make new connections, and learn about social networking and the value of your network! Empire Avenue is completely free and deals in virtual currency. Sign up today to get started. These integrations are made possible because WordPress.com supports a protocol called OAuth2. OAuth2 allows developers to build applications that securely communicate with WordPress.com. We have also launched a developer portal to help developers to get more information about our platform. If your service wants to build with us, don’t hesitate to contact us through the developer portal .
