Which Blogging Platform?

Post icon  Posted 25 October 2007 - 11:32 AM

So which Blogging platform do you use?

I've been using WordPress since 2005. It's powerful, easy to use and customize, and extremely robust as I'm now getting into using it as a CMS for commercial websites.

What do you use and why?

I don't "blog", but I saw a talk from the makers of
Habari. They spoke at Ohio Linux Fest (2007) & I looked into using their software, if I were to install something for blogging. So I'll vote 'other' =-)

When I do blog, I use wordpress, self-installed and gutted for my own personal theme. However I do not blog to often, but I still return to wordpress.

Custom built:

It is geared more for people who don't know how to use the internet well, yet at the same time, is flexible enough for an advanced user to customize it.

Self-hosted Wordpress is my personal choice. I've used b2evo, LiveJournal, Mambo, and Nucleus but Wordpress tends to be the better blogging software.

I do like to use a gutted b2evo as a CMS however.

blogger.com is a great system. I used it for about a year and a half. Very flexible and they allow you to actually utilise your content. I was able to easily extract mine when I migrated to my home-brew.

Well said.. I also support WordPress all the way. I self-host mine, because I can't live without some of the plugins I have :D
