  • I’ve been wondering why they haven’t done this sooner. They may be open-source purists over there, but setting up a commercial service is surely better than gaming Google with off-screen keywords?

    Wonder how much it will cost? I think TypePad is kind of pricey.

  • The more competition the better. I am a Typepad user that has been kicking the tires of a couple of other blogging platforms for awhile now but I gotta say that for my needs, Typepad is getting better every week. From the increased bandwidth to the support for podcasting to the new CSS editing tools, Typepad makes it easy for someone like me who prefers to write about something (indie rock and roll) than experiment with coding my site (which has never been my strength) to get on with the task at hand. Blogging platforms will always be debated ad nauseum but for me Typepad allows me to write about something I am interested in while making it easy to incorporate everything from RSS feeds to custom CSS code (if I so desire). If puts the pressure on Six Apart to increase Typepad’s capabilities so much the better but users of either hosted platform will probably be more interested in ease of use than whether the platform is coded in Perl or PHP. At least that has been my experience. It is a whole different market and I wish them both success. Ease of use is what sets things apart in this market and it looks like can learn some stuff from Typepad (and vice versa) but I have no doubt that they will build an excellent blogging platform “for the rest of us.” Typepad certainly has.
