Well Ed Brill is finally using a Domino based blog system. He has moved to DominoBlog from Steve Castledine and I have to say that the guys in Precision Systems Concepts have done a great job on the look and feel.
Should Ed / PSC have chosen BlogSphere instead of DominoBlog??? Possibly, but they had to make a choice and I’m sure a lot of discussion went into it. DominoBlog probably came out on top for a number of reasons and I’d guess the main ones are that DominoBlog has better ‘Layout’ control and that BlogSphere is still a beta product. What ever the reason I’m sure they made the best one in their circumstances
Have the Domino Blog Wars started??? I hope not. Both tools have their pros and cons, which one gets used is up to the blogger.
One of the things some web designers invariably forget to do when moving or rearranging a website is to make sure that they don’t break any URL’s that may be pointing to the old site. Nearly every blogging system out there has some sort of permanent link that will always bring you to a specific entry. While you can change all the internal links on your own system there is no way of controlling the links that other sites may have pointing to your own. Lets hope the Ed and PSC have thought about this…
BTW : BlogSphere Beta 4 is now available. Check out BlogSphere.net for the download.
