create your own blog Thingamablog is a cross-platform, blogging application and RSS feed reader. It allows you to easily publish your own weblog without the need for any HTML knowledge. Unlike most other blog tools, it does not require the use of any third party services, but publishes the blog directly to the FTP server or network location that you specify. The interface provides a neatly organized overview of your blogs and a word processor like interface to create new entries. You can chose from several professional template designs, and all you have to do is click a button and your blog will go online. In addition, the program also allows you to keep track of your favorites XML/RSS feeds with the integrated feed reader interface. It can also generate a RSS compatible version of your own blog and import entries from RSS/Atom feeds. Copyright

Powerful product - tricky initial setup 4 stars by GJWConsultant Mar 08, 2008 (Read all my 7 reviews)
I first used this application in 2005. Three years on and I was asked by a client to recommend a blog authoring tool. Unfortunately, the documentation is still inadequate on the initial configuration of the publication paths. In the end you just use trial and error combined with an ftp client running to work out what the paths should be. Also, if you enter wrong paths or an incorrect FTP password the cancel button just seems to hang the application and not close gracefully. However, that said, Thingamablog is worth the uphill battle to initially get the publication settings right. show Review details
Highly configurable and great for dialup 5 stars by miskairal May 26, 2007 (Read all my 29 reviews)
Yes it's a little tricky to get the base url and path right but other than that it is easy to use. I was able to totally change the look with the css and html editing and have it joined up with a jalbum which has provided a great combo for my needs on my dialup. In fact I have found this far easier to alter the look of than online bloggers I have tried. show Review details
A great blog editor 4 stars by dhuser7 Mar 13, 2007 (Read all my 2 reviews)
Thingamablog is a great blog maker for your website. The one best thing is that is does not require users to have PHP or MySQL installed on the site. It outputs all posts and content in HTML. Also, RSS feeds are exported. The only annoyances are that: setting up an account w/ FTP is a bit of a pain for new users, and the uploading can get slow (rarely). Overall a great program and blogging tool. show Review details
