blosxom :: the zen of blogging ::I installed and played with Blosxom last winter. After reading about the latest version of this weblogging tool on Pat Delaney's site, I tried it again and I am very impressed. I have it running up on my web space and also on my Powerbook.
I have been looking for a tool that will allow me to keep notes on my laptop. I have been writing notes about my experiences as a first year principal at Lewis Elementary. I had considered using a tool such as Moveable Type, but did not want the notes on a public web site. I also wanted access to my work when not online. Blosxom is just what I was looking for. The CGI will take text files placed in a folder and create them as posts. You can add folders to organize your posts and magically Blosxom will reorganize your site based on the folder structure. For example someone could send me meeting notes from a staff meeting in Word format. I can open them in word, save them as a .txt file into a directory in my Blosxom directory and they are automatically posted.
In addition to posts saved as text files, Blosxom also allows for the creation and editing of posts via the browser.
A very nice tool from Rael Dornfest...
