Crowbot Goes Multi-user Durable Link to this BLOG
Lone Crowbot Goes Multi-user!

The word Lone Blogger is used for someone who uses his or her own blogging tools (courtesy: Blogicon).

I've been a Lone Blogger, using my own tools, and as Yourish says, "Being a Lone Blogger isn't bad at all".
Till someone else needs to use your tool, that is.

My mother started a blog recently, and I evaluated Blogger and Radio Userland to make her blog. We needed the advantages of both the tools which seem to be mutually exclusive 8-( -- edit from anywhere as well as content managed blogs. After struggling for a week to join our CMS with either of the tools (which I am told, is not possible, because the XML/RPC interface supported by both systems (Blogger API, Radio API) is at a very high level, and not at a granularity required for sophisticated publishing), I decided to make my tool multi-user capable.

It was a painful undertaking, because at every decision making process, I had to distinguish between my blog and her's, my shortcuts and her shortcuts, my templates and her templates. The BLOGSearch had to be modified also. But I am getting there. See a test blog.

The obvious next question now is, how can I make this tool available to public?

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.
