| 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 -- 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?
