Postach.io [Blogging driven from Evernote]
http://postach.io/
The blogging platform powered by your Evernote documents.
Postach.io is the easiest way to publish the thoughts you're already capturing in your Evernote. If you currently have notes in your Evernote account, you're ready to publish right now.
Why learn a CMS when you already use Evernote? Simply select a notebook, add a domain name, then tag notes as "published" to share great content. It's that easy.
You'll never need to migrate your posts to a haven. Since your Evernotes are stored locally on your machine or mobile, your data is always in your possession and easy to take with you.
Inspired by the ease of Tumblr, rolling a Postach.io theme is as easy as creating a single HTML page with inline CSS. We include the technical stuff like Google Analytics, Disqus commenting and share buttons.

CoveritLive
http://www.coveritlive.com/
CoveritLive has been in development since 2006 in response to the increasing need to deliver real time reporting to readers of blogs and newspaper sites. Writers were struggling to create so called Ďlive blogsí for sports, political events, television shows, conferences and earnings calls but the existing software was holding them back.
Chatrooms, forums and discussion boards often denigrated into a place for spammers and a small handful of people who felt the need to dominate the group.
CoveritLive took the concept of instant messaging and combined it with the idea that an informed, smart writer could make a live blog worth watching. From there, content (video, audio, images) and interactive (polls, viewer questions) features began to fall into place.

Tumblr and TumbleBlogs
Am just not sure if I should list this as a "Presence Monitoring" application or as a new kind of Blog (which does not accept comments and the Posts tend to be shorter than normal)
To make a simple analogy: If blogs are journals, tumblelogs are scrapbooks.
You can also look at tumblelogs as slightly more structured blogs that make it easier, faster, and more fun to post and share stuff you find or create.

Choosing a Blog Platform
http://www.problogger.net/archives/2006/02/15/choosing-a-blog-platform/
Choosing a Blog Platform
These are just some of the typical questions that I get asked each day from bloggers starting out and attempting to make a decision on which blogging platform or tool they should choose.
Iím not going to tell you which blog platform you should use because, as you will see, there are good reasons for choosing most of the available platforms depending upon the goals of your blog.
What follows is my attempt to flesh out some of the factors a new bloggers might like to consider in deciding on a blog platform. It is probably impacted by own experience of blogging over the last three years and the preferences Iíve accumulated in this time. I invite readers to add to this post in comments below with their own ideas and experiences so we can have a more balanced and useful collection of tips for readers considering such a choice.

Best Blogging Software (review)
The blogging platform wars are getting really interesting and much of the discussion I find myself in lately revolves around what is happening with various CMS systems.
The market can essentially be defined into 3 major camps: remotely hosted, self hosted, and community based systems.
I have used pretty much every blogging platform available and each of them has its ups and downs. In this article I will cover the best options for each area taking into account price, usability, market share and of course SEO potential.
