Build a Blog Reader iPhone App

Hi, at the beginning of this tutorial Amit mentioned it's possible to modify the tutorial to read any blog. My question is, how do you get/find the address which shows the JSON file? For the treehouse blog we're given the address blog.teamtreehouse.com/api/get_recent_summary/. But if I wish to use another blogs JSON file I need it's URL, Correct? Thanks.

Correct, you would need to contact the blog or see if it's a discoverable API somewhere. The format of the feed will be different, but all the concepts will apply.
