OK, so I was looking for some new weblog software for this site. I had been using Drupal, but it was just not working well. It’s XML-RPC API was limited, it was slow, and it took a lot of effort to maintain a blog, which was poorly suited as the site’s primary purpose (as an example: there was no way to make it say anything other than “jgoerzen’s blog” for the title).
So, I went hunting for other blog software. Turns out a lot of people have been doing this lately, for completely unrelated reasons. Anyway, there’s a great comparison chart. He finally made a personal choice, but is continuing to maintin the list.
Slashdot also ran an article on MovableType recently, in which many people are looking for new options.
