The Blogger Data API supports the following query parameter:

We can use one of the folowing values :
  • If wedon't specify an alt parameter, the service returns an Atom feed. This is equivalent to alt=atom
  • alt=rss returns an RSS 2.0 result feed (for reads only)
  • alt=json returns a JSON representation of the feed
  • alt=json-in-script Requests a response that wraps JSON in a script tag
  • alt=atom-in-script Requests an Atom response that wraps an XML string in a script tag.
  • alt=rss-in-script Requests an RSS response that wraps an XML string in a script tag.
  • alt=atom-service Requests an Atom service document that describes the feed.
