This blog will describe some of the learning experiences that I have with .NET, some personal projects that I'm working on, and whatever other topics tickle my fancy.
My Blog Links
Friday, March 19, 2004
When I started my blog, it was not only an outlet for me to express my thoughts; it was also an experiment -- an attempt to create a fully-featured blog using nothing but free software, sites, and services. I began assimilating services I found on the web and at other people's blogs. And, now only about a month into it, I have a pretty feature-rich blog. So, I wanted to write about my experiences doing this, in case other people out there are trying to put together a good blog too. Plus, it gives me a chance to highlight the people that are letting me put up my blog (besides the links to their sites in my blog's "Tools" section aren't even in the RSS feeds anyway).
Here is a list of all of the free stuff I'm using to produce my blog, and some other alternatives that I tried:
The main thing I still need to find is a good place to host my images. The ones I posted earlier are on a workspace on GotDotNet, but folks can't see them without accounts there. I've thought about moving them to a public MSN community, but haven't done it yet. Do you know of any good, free spots to save images? Let me know.
So, are there any other features that my blog is missing?
Obviously, the experiment is just beginning, but so far so good...
