Six Apart launches new TypePad Micro for short blog entries

Six Apart, makers of the powerful TypePad blog hosting service, have launched a leaner, meaner version of TypePad. It's called TypePad Micro, and it falls into the gap between longer blog entries and teeny Twitter posts. TypePad Micro comes with a slick-looking theme called Chroma - although you can customize the look of your blog if you want - and it's free. If you're thinking there are...

Is "Real-Time" taking the place of "Web 2.0" on the hypechart?

Is just me, or is "real-time" the replacement term for "Web 2.0": you know, hideously over-used, over-hyped and prime for a square on the Internet Bullsh*t Bingo card? I mean, word has it that every man, dog and Venture Capitalist is on the real-time train now that mere mortals like parents are embracing Twitter. Continuing the real-time push is Pubsubhubbub - the real-time blog notification...

Crowd-source your blog editing with gooseGrade

Have you ever wished that you could have someone edit your blog posts for typos, spelling errors and grammatical mistakes? Most of us aren't lucky enough to have someone dedicated to catching and fixing our every mistake. Rather than asking one person to edit for you, why not effectively enlist the help of all of your blog's readers? That's what the folks at Brave New Code figured, anyway, when...

Zemanta: it's like cruise control for blogging

If you love writing, but hate the grunt work of blogging - like inserting relevant links, tags, and images, Zemanta might be for you. It's available as an add-on for Firefox or Internet Explorer, and a plug-in for Wordpress or Movable Type, and it automatically adds some useful stuff to your blog posts in progress on most of the major blogging platforms. It suggests links and applies them to the...

WordPress.com users now get 3GB of online storage

Automattic, the company behind the WordPress blogging platform have dramatically increased the online file storage capacity for free WordPress.com blogs. How dramatically? Well bloggers used to get 50MB of space for images and documents. Now they can upload up to 3GB. For free. If 3GB still isn't enough, you can upgrade to 5GB for $20/year, 15GB for $50/year or 25GB for $90/year. Google's Blogger...

Flock 0.9 takes off tomorrow

Flock, the Mozilla based web browser still under development in private beta, is getting a nice overhaul with its 0.9 release tomorrow. If you're not familiar with Flock, it was released in 2005 with much anticipation and hype as the social network browser. Flock was created to integrate various social networks into one browser platform so you could conceivably post items to your blog, update...

Dev Chair : Web 2.0 and future of desktop blogging clients

With all the new and shiny Web 2.0 applications coming out, one may easily be convinced that desktop applications are breathing their last breath. At least that's what Google would like you to think about Google Apps, and its chances against rival Microsoft Office. On the blogging front, most of the popular blogging systems (Blogger, Vox, TypePad, WordPress, etc.) have incorporated some degree...

Pocket SharpMT: Blog on the go

Pocket SharpMT is a handy blogging application for PocketPC devices which supports posting to MovableType blogs, including TypePad. It's the smaller cousin of SharpMT, a desktop blogging client for Windows. With full support of all posting options, as well as the ability to upload images, it's great for blogging if you are away from your computer and want to quickly convey your love of milkshakes...

Vox goes live, open to the public

Vox, the blogging-meets-social-networking site from Movable Type company Six Apart, has finally opened its doors to the public after several months of invite-only beta testing. I've been using Vox for a few months, albeit very lightly, but I must say that that as social networking and blogging sites go, it feels very stable and streamlined. In addition to all the tools you'd expect in a blogging...

SixApart aquires Rojo and Nooz

That famous and cutting edge blogging company SixApart, responsible for TypePad, Moveable Type, Vox, and LiveJournal today announces that it will gobble up social news aggregator Rojo along with Rojo's Nooz. According to TechCrunch, SixApart is planning to "sell a majority interest in the services business within a few months" (Barak Berkowitz, SixApart.com). We're guessing that means part of Rojo...

TypePad Mobile: Blog from your cell phone

Six Apart, makers of hosted blogging site TypePad, have released TypePad Mobile, "a mobile application that lets you update your TypePad blog or photo albums from your Palm, Windows Mobile or Nokia Series 60 smartphone." The software looks pretty basic, but great for chronic mobloggers. It's a free download, but requires a (paid) TypePad account and only works with TypePad blogs. (What, no love...

Vox: Six Apart's new blogging platform/social network

Ouriel Ohayon over at TechCrunch has the scoop on Vox (formerly known as Comet), a new hosted blogging platform from Six Apart, makers of Movable Type, TypePad, and LiveJournal, which will be launching tomorrow. Ohayon describes Vox as "a blogging platform for newbies (albeit with rich and deep functionality) and half social network" which features WYSIWYG editing, easy image, audio, and video...

Ecto blogging tool for Windows

Ecto is a handy, fast, and powerful (but easy-to-use) blogging tool. Unfortunately, it's only been available for Macs- until now. The developers finally released the much-anticipated version 2.0 of ecto, now with Windows compatibility. It requires the .NET framework, and costs just under $18. What's so great about ecto? For me, aside from support for almost every major blogging service out there,...

TypePad launches blog widgets

Today Six Apart launched the TypePad Widget Gallery, which is full of "blog widgets," or little modules you can add to your TypePad blog's sidebar that do things like display your Pandora stations, Squidoo lenses, or Rollyo searches. Until now, customizations like this for TypePad were only possible by hand-editing HTML templates, but widgets can be quickly installed with a few clicks....

Six Apart gets funding, buys SplashBlog

Six Apart, the company that owns popular blogging software Movable Type and web services TypePad and LiveJournal, has been busy lately. According to TechCrunch, they've raised $12 million in VC funding and, more interestingly (to me, at least), acquried SplashBlog. SplashBlog is a service for blogging and photoblogging from mobile phones and PDAs, and it's reasonable to expect Six Apart to...
