8 of the Best Free Linux Blog Software

8 of the Best Free Linux Blog Software

Weblog software (also known as blog software or blogware) enables users to maintain an ongoing chronicle of information on a website. Typically, a blog is a frequently updated, personal website, with diary-type commentary, descriptions of events, and sometimes includes graphics and video as well as links to articles on other sites. However, blogs can also be used for business purposes.

Blogs can be narrow in scope, focusing on one individual topic or subject, or covering a much wider sphere. The ability for readers to make interactive comments on the blog is typically permitted and encouraged.

This article focuses on software that is set up and hosted on the platform by yourself, rather than blogging services where a third-party service is used to handle the blog software, such as Blogger or Typepad.

Blog content is stored in a file system, and changes to the content are typically stored in a relational database management system (such as MySQL).

Software that provides a method of managing a website is commonly known as a Web Content Management System (or WCMS). Many blogging software programs are considered a specific type of WCMS. In this feature we have included some of the best WCMS software which also make great blogging tools.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 8 high quality free Linux blogware. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for anyone who wishes to share their thoughts with others.

Now, let's explore the 8 blog applications at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
