Is there a way to automatically approve Blogposts I created with a .Net Webrequest/REST? I can currently add posts to the Blogs list just fine, but I can't get them to be approved/be published automatically...

I too am trying to do something like this. I get an error that the column _ModerationStatus is not valid on the item type. Did you ever find a way to do this? – El Hombre Mar 11 '14 at 18:10
@El Hombre postItem["_ModerationStatus"] = "0"; worked for me – Saph Mar 14 '14 at 7:25

Theoretically, you should be able to do this. The field you want to explore is _moderationstatus. Here someone has listed all the status values.
