Dreambook as a weblog?

I’ve been thinking about creating a weblog and I’m wondering if DreamBook would be a good tool for that? Is anyone using DreamBook for that? Can you give me the URL so I can take a look? What do you think of DreamBook as a weblogging tool? Does anyone have any other suggestions for an easy weblogging tool? I want something that will be server based and that I can update from anywhere, e.g., in an Internet Cafe.

Thanks,
Nancy

Dreambook COULD be very powerful. I’m still waiting eagerly for its version 2.0. But for the time being, check out Greymatter - http://www.noahgrey.com/greysoft/

Dreambook does actually support “weblog” features already too, though.

Choosing that your new book is a weblog rather than a guestbook basically turns off public posting. The dreambook owner (you) can still post to it though via http://manage.dreambook.com/ .

And of course the entire look/fields/etc… is fully HTML customizable. But yeah, there are lots of other remotely hosted weblog services like:

josh!

Do you know if anyone is using DreamBook as a web log? Is anyone here using it for anything? I’m wondering what people think of it? Where can I get technical details about how it’s implemented. I looked at the Greymatter site and it is based on perl. I like the idea of using something like DB where I don’t need to do anything to set it up, i.e., I can just use it and DH will deal with keeping the backend working and updated (I assume).

BTW, I would much prefer to discuss these things in a newsgroup – are there any newsgroups where people discuss DH or DB?

Thanks,

I like the greymatter one. In fact, I use it on my site as a dream journal (no pun intended) The setup wasn’t that hard and I found a premade “skin” for it.

w/r/t newsgroups, i’m pretty sure there isn’t a dh-related newsgroup.

i suppose we could create one (perhaps in the alt. hierarchy).

i’m not sure how popular such a newsgroup would be, however. i promise i’ll post to it if someone starts one though (and i’ll try to get some other DH staff to join as well)!
