While BLOGnBOX doesn't have as many features, it lets me focus on what I want from a blog. Although this has changed over time, I think what I currently want is:
- A way to publish my thoughts and ideas.
- An archive of my thoughts and ideas.
- A primary means of writing.
I am less concerned with the web aspects of a blogging system. I'd like to have a clean, simple (yet elegantly presented) blog that I can tinker with as needed.
What led me down this path of thought is the desire to extract blog entries (or the whole blog) as a PDF document. By PDF, I really mean LaTeX or TeX quality (not just a dump). AFT does this for me, but it might be overkill for a blogging system. Perhaps the next iteration of BLOGnBOX should leverage LaTeX directly?
