    If you want automated blogs to your blogspot, you can do it with some programs to auto-populate your blog with articles. But you can also do so with google. Use Google Alerts to send articles on any subject you choose. You'll start receiving articles shortly on the subject you chose. Then set your settings to automatically forward e-mails from Google Alerts to Blogspot. Presto - auto content without having to do it yourself.
