Chapter 16. Beyond the Blog > Crossover Blogging Providers

Crossover Blogging Providers

Radio Userland and MoveableType were both covered in Chapter 3, “Overview of the Major Blog Providers,” because they are popular blogging applications. But they are different from other blogging applications because in addition to providing blogging, they provide whole-site management. It makes sense, and we may see more and more blog providers doing this.

Radio Userland

In terms of site management, Radio Userland works like CityDesk in that you download it to your desktop and work from there. And Radio Userland is Mac and Windows compatible, whereas CityDesk is only Windows-friendly. Because you already learned about the features of Radio Userland in Chapter 3, we don’t need to list them all here. But it is worth mentioning that Radio automatically builds your site, organizes and archives your posts, and publishes your content without requiring that you have any knowledge of HTML, FTP, or graphic design. It is blog-like site editing for your whole site, packaged in a downloadable desktop application.
