a cool article compares different blogging software Wednesday, 25 January 2006 11:28 amPosted by Dongmei in free/Open Source Software, Internet Resources.
Are you new to the Blogsphere? Don’t know which blog software to choose? Or you’re just totally lost, need a primer to read. This article is for you, “Time to check: Are you using the right blogging tool?” (http://www.ojr.org/ojr/stories/050714gardner/) from Online Journalism Review (http://www.ojr.org/). (Caution: if you’re going to print out this article, be sure to use the printer-friendly version on the top of the screen.)
A companion chart to the article “Blog software comparison chart” (http://www.ojr.org/ojr/images/blog_software_comparison.cfm) did a good job on comparing the listed software’s functionality, extras, spam fighting tools, maintenance, design, and publishing interface.
I also found the comments to the article very interesting, among them, many are blog/computer geeks. And several popular blog software (among the geeks) are pointed out in the comments, including some open source software, which are to my interest, such as Scoop, Drupal.
Although I decided to use WordPress before reading this article, I still found this to be a good read.
Thanks Paul R. Pival for pointing this out in his blog, the Distant Librarian.
