Suggestions on Ruby code for API

hi , i am new to ROR

i was acually trying to write Ruby code for the api blogs

i have written the ruby code as

      Loading development environment (Rails 2.3.8)
      >> class Blogpost < ActiveRecord::Base
      >> has_many :taggings
      >> has_many :tags,:through => :taggings
      >> end
      => nil
     >> class Taggings < ActiveRecord::Base
     >> belongs_to :blogpost
    >> belongs_to :tag
    >> end
    => nil

    ?> @tags=Tag.find_by_name("blog7")
    => #<Tag id: 4, name: "blog7">
    >> @taggings=Tagging.find_by_id(@tags.id)
    => #<Tagging id: 4, tag_id: 1, taggable_id: 4, taggable_type:
"Blogpost", created_at: "2010-09-02 10:03:08">
    >> @blogposts=Blogpost.find_by_id(@taggings.taggable_id)
      => #<Blogpost id: 4, title: "blog post4", type: nil, slug:
"blog-post4", description: "<p>BLOG desc 4</p>", meta: nil, user_id: 1,
category_id: 379344121, times_viewed: 2, comments_count: 0, published:
1, created_at: "2010-09-02 10:03:08", updated_at: "2010-09-03 05:11:46",
delta: false>

Whether this way of writing Ruby code is the correct procedure for API..

Please give suggestions ..

If you had those associations then typically you'd use them, ie you'd
do stuff like @tag.taggings or @tag.blogposts rather than calling
find. It's also a little misleading the way you've used plurals
(@tags, @taggings etc...) for things that are only single objects, not
collections.
