  • I've been happy using (perl-based) Movable Type on a shared hosting account. Using a perl-based blogging platform is one more way to support the community. (And there is talk in the MT community of refactoring it to use CGI::Application and other CPAN modules).

    It runs multiple blogs out of the box, so you can easily run your technical blog and personal blog in one place, as I do:

    http://mark.stosberg.com/blog [stosberg.com]
    http://mark.stosberg.com/bike [stosberg.com]

    My "Perl" category is subscribed to by PerlSphere.

    I also prefer the philosophy of a decentralized grassroots network of blogs, rather than giving centralized control to some third-party organization.

    • I hope they do refactor it and get rid of the PHP dependency for dynamic stuff.

    • It's also pretty easy to tweak MT so that you can have per-category RSS feeds in one blog. I've done this, so I effectively have three (yes, three), three blogs in one!

      Are they going to use CGI::Explorer to show replies to posts?

      Cheers

      • If someone makes a case that CGI::Explorer would be a good replacement for some they do internally now, I think it would be considered.

    • Yeah Movabletype is great stuff, I use it myself and am very pleased with it. See my web log at http://www.kiffingish.com/ [kiffingish.com] .
