AnthoBLOGy Good or Bad? Durable Link to this BLOG
To Endorse or not to Endorse AnthoBLOGy?

A small battle of wits has broken out among the Indian bloggers after Just a Little Something complimented this blog.

• Deep Link to the discussion (cached copy)
• Sins of Bloggers

In her comment, Anita Bora makes a special mention of my blogging engine. For sometime now, I have thought about making my blog software available to the public. However, I am hesitant as the support questions that would arise would take away all my time. For, it is designed for me, with tight integration with our CMS, and there are no themes, tools etc., that other bloggers would expect. However, it has so many super-cool features that even other so called advanced tools do not have. I did not realize that till I looked at the features of Blogger Pro and CityDesk.

Most importantly, I have closely embeded SQL and Rules into the blogging engine. So if you know a scripting language (PHP or VBScript) and know something about Relational Databases, it is a great tool for writing blogs. I can seamlessly write SQL, Script, English and HTML, in addition to my own short-cuts that I call rules.

Perhaps someday...

This is how I surf the web. Turns out creating your own start page beats all portals, back-flipping, personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
