The right blog software can make a blog stand out

Blogs are an easy way to transmit your voice to the network. For Web-It-Yourselfer, personalized blogs are a great way to learn about web technologies and create something from scratch.

With a little technological knowledge, anyone can create their own personalized blog. When choosing a blog software or a blog service, consider the following:

Support -

The implementation of new software will create many questions. Does the software have a support site / forum? How big is the user community? Is the user community useful?

It's free? -

There really is no need to pay a lot of money for the software or a service. Free does not mean cheap. There is free quality software available.

Easy customization

Is the software flexible enough to allow customization? Can you change the colors? Can style sheets be used? Are there custom add-ons available developed by the user community? Is there a robust set of functions that can be used to perform simple tasks? For example, some programs offer a simple function that will produce a long list of links. This saves the need for much coding.

PHP based

Don't worry, it's not that scary. The combination of HTML and PHP can create a highly personalized blog. Especially for those who like to rummage through the code, PHP-driven software can provide a valuable learning experience.

Links -

Can the software manage links? Any software that makes it easier has a definite advantage.

Publications and pages -

If you are familiar with blogs, you know that a blog post is commonly known as a post. Can regular pages be created also from the software? This allows maximum flexibility.

Content Management -

Now, most blog software is not intended to accomplish this task. Search and see if the blog software can be used to be a basic content management system. Some programs are incredibly flexible and can perform this task.

Why not take the time to research the blog software that will allow a blog to stand out from the crowd?
