I posted version 1.0.3 of blelo. See the release notes in the distribution file for details.

Changes in Blelo 1.0.2:

Blelo to-do: there should be separate RSS feeds available for each tag. That way, someone interesting only in my posts about woodworking doesn't have to read my posts about chess. This should be pretty easy to do.

Blelo to-do: add some sort of type ahead suggestion auto-complete feature for the tags field on the new post form.

I discovered that vim can edit a file inside a tar archive without the user having to un-tar and re-tar the whole thing. Handy.

I'm also in the process of moving all my old delicous bookmarks here, though it might take some time. My future bookmarking will occur here not at delicious.

The content from my old blog went away when I hosed by Wordpress installation, but I'll be moving at least the more popular posts to this new blog soon.

So, I wrote a blogging platform over the last couple of weeks. I call it Blelo as in tumblelog. This is still a fairly early version, but it's mature enough that it's useful. My motivation for writing my own blogging platform is that, among the existing open source blogging platforms, Wordpress comes closest to meeting my needs, but I've grown increasingly frustrated by Wordpress's bloat and security issues.

I wrote Belo with minimalism in mind for both the feature set and the code. I does include tags, an RSS feed, and some magic post auto-formatting. The README included with the distribution file should get you started if you want to play with it. Blelo requires Apache, mod_rewrite, PHP 5, and MySQL 5.
