To solve this bottleneck, here is the rough content structure that I am currently planning to implement on LessWrong:

I notice that this picture doesn't seem to include link posts. Will those still exist?

We have link post functionality but I think we're trying to shift away from it, and instead more directly solve the problem of people-posting-to-other-blogs (both by making it a better experience to post things here on your personal section, and to make it possible to post things to your blog that are auto-imported into LW)

and to make it possible to post things to your blog that are auto-imported into LW

What kind of technical implementation are you looking at for this?

This already exists! You can see an example of that with Elizabeth's blog "Aceso Under Glass" here:


We set it up so that Elizabeth has a tag on her wordpress blog such that whenever she adds something to that tag, it automatically gets crossposted to LessWrong. We can do this with arbitrary RSS feeds, as long as the RSS feeds export the full html of the post.

Habryka knows that better than I, I just know that it's in the works.
