Wall St. Journal tech writer Walter Mossberg’s review of three blog software services looks at blogging as a way absolutely anyone with Internet access can a produce personal journal.
“We quickly learned,” Mossberg wrote, “how simple it is to set up a blog, and how addictive they can become.”
He tested three blog services and liked MSN Spaces the best. He also likes Blogger, which, like the totally useless Yahoo!360, has no trackbacks.
If one of the blogs set up on Blogger or Yahoo!360 were to become successful and develop an audience, those services would be inadequate. With no trackbacks, neither is truly participatory and the blogger would most likely have to move to a better service like Moveable Type, Typepad, WordPress or Drupal.
