A new piece of blogware I haven’t heard of before: Thingamablog.

According to LinuxDesktop:

Unlike most blogging software packages, Thingamablog does not require its web-accessed files to reside on a cgi/php-enabled webserver, and doesn’t need a MySQL database. According to the project’s website, all that’s needed to set up and manage a blog using Thingamablog is FTP, SFTP, or network access to a basic webserver.

Listed Thingamablog capabilities include:

* Set up a blog in minutes via a wizard
* Maintain multiple blogs
* Manage thousands of entries
* Dynamically update blog content
* Write entries offline (for dialup users)
* Publish your blog with a single click
* Read news with an integrated feed reader
* Make posts from favorite feeds
* Create a unique layout with customizable templates
* Import news from RSS/Atom feeds
* Set up flexible archiving options
* Organize blog entries by category or date
* Save entries as drafts
* Define custom template tags
