How many blogs have I had? I have lost count.
My first was probably static HTML, a personal website. My personal sites have lived on a few hosts but after 1998 they will have been on chrisg.com or .org .. mostly .org I think.
Had a “blog” on most of them. They weren’t called blogs until … well, I dunno. Probably around the time “blogger” started. I do recall they were called “weblogs” and “journals” for a while before “blog”. My site definately had a “journal” because the index was called journallist (.cgi, .asp, .jsp, .php, etc).
My first blog that I didn’t code myself was the most recent, various versions of DasBlog. Which is a fine piece of software, it just hates me. Which is partly why I am starting all over again, the other reason being I lost my server and everything on it all of a sudden. Don’t ask. Really. Don’t ask.
Which brings us to WordPress. I did some reviews and WP came top. I thought I might as well take my own advice. I am also starting two or three other blogs over the next couple of weeks, they will be multi-author blogs and therefore will be Drupal based. Could this be the end of my infatuation with Microsoft platform software? We will have to see ..
