Blogging Software

Blogs are not just for blowhards anymore. We review five blogging packages that can suit a range of business sizes and budgets.

In addition, personal and general-purpose blogs are generally created using hosted applications, which can be set up quickly and economically, and without the overhead of installing software on a server and maintaining user accounts and data. However, for more controlled environments where the security of the data content is a critical, an organization may decide to install blog software on its own servers.

This review looks at a five blog applications that fill a variety of business needs.

Blogger.com is one of the most prominent names in blogging. It offers users (mostly consumers) a choice: You can opt to have your content hosted at a subdomain of Blogspot.com, or you can publish your blog to a Web server of your choice via FTP.

Blogger.com is easy to set up and configure -- you can choose from a variety of templates or, if you're comfortable with HTML programming, create your own design. I was able to create a free account and a blog on Blotspot.com in less than five minutes using the WYSIWIG editor.
