6 More of the Best Free Linux Blog Software

6 More of the Best Free Linux Blog Software

Weblog software (also known as blog software) is a type of application which is designed to help users effortlessly create and maintain weblogs.

Blogs can be narrow in scope, focusing on one individual topic or subject, or covering a much wider sphere. They can be also created for many different reasons. We often see individuals decide to embark on blogging for personal reasons so that they can think, pass time, share experiences, plan and reflect on daily life. Others see blogs more as an educational or informational tool. Blogs are also found in the corporate world, frequently used as a marketing tool given that they lend well to conveying ideas, can be added and updated on a frequent basis at any location. Senior management also perceive the blog as a way of engaging with their employees.

Most blog services and blogging content management systems let users post from their websites. Some of their web interfaces are quite polished. However, it is becoming increasingly popular for bloggers to use local software stored on their computer. Besides enabling blogs to be composed offline, blogging software has much functionality that is not available using the website of a blog service.

Our article entitled 8 of the Best Free Linux Blog Software highlighted our personal picks in the blogging world. Many of those applications receive frequent coverage in Linux publications. However, since that article was written in February 2009 there have been a number of other blogging tools that have been seen significant development. From feedback from our readership, we have also identified other blogging software that are definitely worth trying. All of the applications in this feature offer differing approaches, but they share a common goal of making blogging considerably easier than posting directly on the web site of blog services.

To provide an insight into the quality of software available for Linux, we have compiled a list of 6 more of the best blog software. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for anyone who wants to share their thoughts with others. We give our highest recommendation to Blogilo.

Now, let's explore the 6 blog tools at hand. For each application 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.
