Tim Bray wrote this weekend about the rewards of rolling your own weblogging software. I like having my own, but I wrote it before Blogger existed. There was really only whatever Radio UserLand was called back then, and I wasn’t interested in that. My weblogging software is really starting to show its age though, but I’m saving up all the features I want (mainly things like trackback and a Wiki-like markup language for use in entering items) for when I learn Python. I’ve also been considering writing an EJB-based blogging package just for practice, but I don’t think I’d ever deploy that anywhere.
