    Forget this!! If you want a real applications for Blogging that is easy to use and is well established and works try RapidWeaver.

    Knocks the spots of this application and you are not used as a Beta tester for the developers!!

    Thanks for the feedback, RapidWeaver fan. We don't force the user to be beta testers...we just post them on our site and they're picked up automatically.

    There's a new review of all the blogging apps for the Mac on Informit that you should read.

    I got RapidWeaver included in one of those MacUpdate packages and it is a horrible application with the same following as the Emperors New Suit. It cannot import exiting sites, or their content, and have they not heard about WYSIWYG? On top of that you pick a theme and your life ends. At least with iWeb you can pick themes on a page-by-page basis. Sure, Rapidweaver creates fairly clean code but compared to the size of the images and movies the difference is minuscule.

    Great App! As a new blogger, I found this easy to use, fast, and has great support. I was able to save the file locally, and upload it to my school's site--saved me hours of work. Other blog apps might be free, but you get what you pay for with this app.

    Ok, I purchased, on face value because I was impressed with the features.

    There are a few major problems that need to be addressed before I mofrate away from iBlog which I have used for 2 years.

    All posts within the blog go onto the frontpage, making the frontpage to long! Which means you have to archive all the time otherwise no one would read your blog, or they would develop RSI in the process.

    This software lacks categories! If you can categorise your entries, it would allow you to discuss and post on different related subjects which are not all posted to the frontpage.

    The iTunes integration is ver flaky, and I still can not get this software to post my iTunes list into my blog which is really annoying.

    It has great potential, I think I may come back in a year when it has matured into a more useable appliction.

    Surely the easy way to publish a blog on your .Mac account is to use iBlog, which comes free with .Mac?

    Surely?

    Actually iBlog does not come free w/ .Mac. A couple of years ago for a limited time, iBlog was offered free to .Mac users; but like just about all of those offers, they go away forever after about 60 days.

    In fact, .Mac has had little to none of these offers lately. I've tried iBlog several times and it works okay, but I had numerous stability issues not to mention the lack of real custom control. BlogwaveStudio was a great alternative but the developer took the money and ran about 3 months ago.

    I took the learning curve plunge and d/l wordpress and ecto to create my own custom blog. It's definitely a curve but once you get there, the real beauty and charm of a blog becomes apparent.

    what's this all about: "HomePage found the following issues with the HTML page you chose. Please fix these issues and try again: HTML pages using framesets are not supported by the External HTML template in HomePage." ... I'm beginning to not like this software a lot.

    I was very excited about this product until I spent my afternoon following their simple "create you first blog" instructions. Everytime I push the "publish to .mac" absolutely nothing happens. Maybe you'll have better luck. I think it sucks.

    Dude, this is TIGHT! This actually makes .Mac a good deal... iTunes links go directly to the music store. Very good tool for easy blogging. What could be simpler?

    Blog.Mac is a Godsend. I've used Blogger and others, but offline updates are so tricky and haphazzard. With Blog.Mac I just use my .Mac account to generate my Blog for fellow students in my courses. I'm able to easily add posts offline while in class and upload them whem I get back to the network in the library or at home. No other software is as reliable... Blogger Word pluggins for PC (yes, I use PCs, too) often lose posts or omit headers... Blog.Mac does it right every time. I love the interface and the ease of use. And when I'm out of town, I use my iSight with Blog.Mac to keep an eye on my pets. If you're like me, you got a mac for reliability and ease of use... and that's exactly what you'll love about Blog.Mac. Apple's crazy if they don't adopt it in OS 10.5!!

    Try Journler with livejournal it is reliable. But I agree, Blog.Mac is pretty good for .mac, far better than iBlog. Anyway, it costs 30 bucks when Journler is free. I think Apple must add a blog function to .mac and not rely on sharewares...
