AOL Journals allows you to post to your blog via Instant Messenger. I’ve been playing around with it at: http://journals.aol.com/spudart/blog/. It’s one of those boring what I’m doing lately blogs. Nothing exciting about new interesting thoughts. The blog here on spudart.org is my more complete interesting thoughts blog, while this aol one is more personal news.
But I don’t like how I don’t have a backup of the things I post on the AOL blog. It would be nice to have a post via IM with livejournal or xanga, because they have great communities of people. But then there’s the backup issue too.
At work I’ve been playing with wordpress for a department blog, and it’s got lots of neat plug-ins. But none that allows you to post via IM. But it’s certainly nice that WordPress allows me to have my backup of all the posts and comments.
In an ideal world, I would like to use a livejournal or xanga, but also be able to back up my posts and be able to post via IM.
