Blogging Tools

I’ve been playing around with some different Blogging tools. I like WordPress because it’s very easy to setup, but there are some little things here and there that I wished it did. I could modify it or try out some others. I’ve spent some time on OpenSourceCMS.com

So far, I’ve narrowed it down to a few from the list.

I’ve been tinkering with Nucleus, which I must say is pretty nice. It’s really geared at more of a developer type as it does require more effort to get it working the way one wants to, but by the same token takes less effort then making a bunch of changes to WordPress. BTW, I also noticed that there is a BLOG:CMS, which seems to be a derivative of Nucleus, with some added features. Some of those features are things that I’m also interested in such as PunBB, Dokuwiki, and Singapore.

I’ve also been checking out Drupal, which has some nice features too, even though it’s more of a hybrid CMS and Blog.

I also installed Textpattern which has an interesting backend, but in the end felt it wasn’t right for me. Ditto with pLog.

So, this site will likely change soon.

Ecto is an interesting tool that allows you to make blog entries using an OSX native app. I’m going to play around with it a bit, but right now I’ve got it updating WordPress and Nucleus sites with out any problems.
