Radio UserLand

First thoughts on the new Radio UserLand Weblogging tool.

I use some Open Source software to run this site, called monaural jerk. It does a passably good job, doing most of what I want it to do, and not too many things I hate.

Recently UserLand shipped a new Weblogging tool, called Radio UserLand, which has an awful lot of features and groovy stuff. Since they did a version for Mac OS X, I went ahead and bought it (it’s only $40, but a 30-day trial version is fully functional), and have been playing with it much of this afternoon.

It’s fairly cool, a much deeper product than the software I’m currently using. It has some downsides, too, and I’m figuring out some of those as I go. You can read more of that at my Radio ‘blog.

If you’ve been thinking about starting a Weblog, though, Radio might be the thing for you. It’s affordable, simple, and powerful. Check it out!
