#yam For Blogs

Several times now I've posted about the integration of internal and external blogs.

I told you about our internal microblogging experiment with Yammer. (Things are still going OK, by the way!) And if you're on Twitter you may have seen this: #yam. Some people have asked me what that means. Well #yam integrates Twitter with Yammer. So, if I tweet something I'd also like to share internally (with my colleagues), I add #yam to the tweet. That tweet is then retweeted into Yammer automatically. Great feature!

But that got me thinking. Wouldn't it be nice to have such a tag for certain blogposts. So you add a (hash)tag to a blogpost on your external blog and it automatically also gets published on your internal blog. This solves my problem of posting twice using copy-paste.

What do you think of this idea? And if you have an internal and external blog, how do you maintain them? Do you copy posts from one to the other?
