Blogging Software

A blog is a website that is made up of posts listed in order by date (with the newest first). Originally, weblogs were intended as personal diaries on the world wide web but quickly became used for other purposes such as opinion pieces, topic specific discussions and more. Recently, multi-user blogs where more than one person contributes articles have become popular. They consist of a compilation of professionally edited posts and some are used for corporate advertising purposes, as discussions in specific niches and more.

The following is a list of blog software / platforms. We regularly maintain our lists and check them to ensure that each of the listed products are under active development and have had releases within the past year.
