My blog (Mechanical Revolution) runs on a CMS I wrote myself (Miril) and is hosted on Hostgator. Nothing beats use.perl.org in terms of traffic it generates though. If you post regularly, you can join the Iron Man Challenge, but it won't give the same level of visibility to your blog. There are also http://planet.perl.org/ and http://perlsphere.net/, but I have not figured out how to join them yet.

Maybe this can help: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Data-AsObject/ (Note - I am the author).

Sometimes, however, XML::LibXML is not an option. In the example above, I use XML::Compile (which BTW uses XML::LibXML internally), which is currently the best option if you want to work with schema-compliant XML documents (especially if you want to create and modify ones). The other such module I often use is XML::TreePP, which is a pure-perl solution and is available in environments where XML::LibXML isn't.

  Comment: I find SF too messy (Score 1) on 2009.08.17 11:29

SF has been undergoing a lot of positive changes lately. It is the only open-source hosting solution that provides all the features you need under one umbrella - version control, timeline, support forums and mailing list, bug tracking, website hosting, etc. Also, it can provide a lot of visibility by occasionally listing your project or news in a prominent location such as its front page.

The downside for me is that the user interface is pretty messy and not as polished as in most modern two point oh apps. I am currently facing a similar dilemma and I am not yet decided if I will go for SF or use a combination of several tools (github for version control and issue tracking and google groups for support).
