Ok, i'm going over to, for the time being at least.

new blogspot

I'll have to go without AdSense over there; they say they may introduce it but I won't be holding my breath.

In the end it's the connectivity that's won the day for with the ability to publish an RSS feed for both my blog and the feedback comments.

Tar Tar For Now

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not sure

In picking between my two winning blogspots it ends up with format freedom vs connectivity. gives me pretty good freedom for chosing my own format including AdSense, whereas, gives me the connectivity i.e. RSS on both my blog and the feedback comments.

Help me! I can’t choose!

Watch this space; no err, that space; no err. Arrrgh!

Romany blood.

So I’ve spent a little bit of time away from over at and I've really fallen in love with my space - it’s slick and simple to use and it looks great.

However, i’m getting the seven day itch. It seems to me that wordpress is really best downloaded and run from your own server. Thus allowing plugins and serious customization; Google AdSense, for example.

Google’s own is the obvious direction for at least the AdSense.

Watch this space. Err, no, that space, err no this space; doh!

public blogging for free

I’ve been looking for the best provider for blogging on the www and for free.

Of course I’m asking a lot but I’d like to be able to blog in public with as much ease and power as I can blog here at work where we have b2evolution running on our intranet.

I’ve tried a few places, starting with the obvious and, followed by some less well known like, and I’ve also stumbled upon but I think that I’ve got to be a Sun worshiper to join The blogs I want to add about open source .Net might not go down too well there.

The problem with each of the ones I’ve tried is that they are limited in one way or another e.g. only one post allowed or no RSS feeds on feedback.

Someone at work suggested I try wordpress which looks good so far. Of course has a lot of what I need and I will compare this site with wordpress for a while until I can settle on the one most fitted to me.
