Post to FriendFeed is a WordPress Plugin which will allow you to post excerpts from your blog posts as a message in FriendFeed with images. By default FriendFeed posts them without images and this Plugin overcomes this issue.
I created this Plugin after seeing a discussion at FriendFeed where Thomas Hawk was tossing around the idea of dropping his blog feed from his FriendFeed profile.
In addition to the Pluign, I have also created a simple online interface for people who don’t use WordPress.
Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page. You have to enter the FriendFeed nickname and API key in the settings page.
Also note that this Plugin needs FriendFeed API Core Plugin to be installed.

The pot file is available with the Plugin. If you are willing to do translation for the Plugin, use the pot file to create the .po files for your language and let me know. I will add it to the Plugin after giving credit to you.
