I see Robert Scoble is switching to WordPress as his blogging engine of choice – way to go Robert! His new WordPress-powered blog will be on the hosted WordPress site WordPress.com at the address http://scobleizer.wordpress.com/.
Although this site uses WordPress, I haven’t tried the hosted version of WordPress so I can’t comment on how different it is from a regular WordPress blog.
The features of WordPress I like the most are the fact that it is open source, it is web standards compliant out of the box, and there are literally hundreds of plug-ins available for it. Just this morning I installed a great plug-in to manage Technorati Tags called Ultimate Tag Warrior!
Other WordPress plug-ins I love are:
- Subscribe to Comments
- Tiger Style Administration
- WordPress Database Backup
- Feedburner Feed Replacement
- WP ContactForm
- Comment Quicktags and
- Comment Live Preview
So, welcome aboard the best and most extensible blogging engine on the planet Robert – you made the right decision.
Updated to add in the new uri for the Subscribe to Comments plugin
