Tumblelog with Drupal, Simplefeed, Taxonomy and views

For my own documentation purposes I write this howto. If ths howto is helpful for you, that's even better. Keep in mind that with Drupal there are roughly unlimited ways to achieve what you want, that's the power as well as the weakness of Drupal.

For this website I wanted to create an aggregated Tumblelog. I wanted to import my bookmarks, findings and babblings elsewhere as a node. All items should be grouped under their original source and should show up in the correct order on th timeline. As described I tried FeedAPI to take care if importing the feeds as node, but I could not get it to act the way I intended it to be. And I'm now very happy with SimpleFeed.
