I wanted to create a blog for Louis (in the full knowledge that probably I’m the only one going to be reading the thing anyway). I didn’t want to use anything that wasn’t on my server and did some investigating.
Choices were limited as I found out my cheap hosting package doesn’t support MySql which most of the biggie applications needed.
I eventually found Greymatter, a nice piece of software. It wasn’t easy for a novice like me to get to grips with (my fault, not Greymatter’s) and I still haven’t integrated it as well as I would like into Louis’ webpage but it seems to work well.
