Looking for a new blogging tool
I finally did it and bought a domain name and got a hosting company. My big plan for this weekend was to move my blog off of Blogger and onto WordPress. But because my hosting company is GoDaddy and I have the Windows hosting option, this didn’t work. The only way I could use WordPress to blog on GoDaddy would be to switch to the Unix hosting option and I want the ASP.NET 2.0 solution to play around with. So WordPress isn’t going to happen for me.
I then noticed that GoDaddy has a blogging tool called QuickBlog and I actually moved my blog over and I was getting really excited until I realized that I couldn’t access the template. I sent an email to GoDaddy asking about that and they confirmed that there is no way for me to put any of my own code into the template. This doesn’t work for me. But I have to say that QuickBlog looked very good and I think for more casual bloggers it is an outstanding tool. If I wasn’t so attached to some of the tools I’m using to monitor this blog, I would have made the move.
My next attempt will have to wait for later in the week. I just downloaded DotNetNuke 4.0.3 and hopefully this experiment will work out. Bill had posted that he had a good experience with it, so I’m going to give it a shot.
