It looks like blogger is down at the moment, and i’ve been having problems with it with annoying regularity recently. I think it’s time to switch to something else. I’ve been running this site from xml files for a while now but still using blogger to update them. What I’d really like is a script that I could run on my server, preferably PHP, that essentially imitates blogger, but the feature set doesn’t need to be so rich, because it would always generate XML instead of using templates, and it wouldn’t need multi-user functionality, and it wouldn’t necessarily publish over FTP. Surely such a thing already exists? A server-side CMS for simply-structured XML documents? I’ve started writing one, but if it’s already written, I’d love to hear about it.
