So, I’m trying out some new weblogging software. Previously, I was using PyBlosxom, a python port of blosxom. This worked great as a tinkering tool, but I just found it incredibly inconvenient to work with compared to some of the other blogging tools out there – particularly, needing to ssh into a host and run emacs just to update my blog. (Yes, I know I could have setup an email-to-blog gateway or somesuch, but even that would have been relatively painful.)
Now, I’m trying out the brand-new beta build of WordPress. It’s clean, it’s PHP, and it seems to have all the main features I want in a blog without having to write them myself.
