For a long time I’ve been wondering why I don’t blog more and one big thing is that I’ve never been one that wanted to go to a web page and fill in a form to post an entry.

Sure that is perfectly acceptable when you are at work or somewhere else ( e.g. not at home ) but when I’m using my computer I want to use a desktop application.

I’ve tried a few different application on Linux ( such as Drivel, BloGTK, Gnome Blog among others ) but all of them had something that irritated me.

Some where too complicated for what I needed to do ( I just need to post an entry now and again ) and most tries to login to the site before you would be able to start writing your post and since my server is pretty slow most of the time that’s a major problem for me.

So what is a programmer to do? Well you of course start writing your own software that will satisfy all your needs.

sBlog will be a very simple blog software but hopefully pretty powerful to, it will not contain any blog editor so you have to use some other editor ( you can use whatever you want, Gedit, vim or even OpenOffice ( just make sure you save to text or send in a patch to allow sBlog to import a OpenOffice document ) ).

Stay tuned for more info about sBlog.
