Because Blogsy is a blogging app our RSS feeds are filled with blogs that talk about blogging. One of these articles in my RSS feed caught my eye so I thought I would share it with you.
The title of the article is WordPress completely dominates top 100 blogs. I think it is obvious from the title that they are comparing what platforms are being used. But I have to admit that I misread the title, or just didn’t register the last part until I read the article, because I thought the article was covering the most commonly used blogging platforms in general. But in actuality they are just talking about the top 100 blogs on the internet. I think the needs of the top 100 blogs may be a little different than the needs of the casual blogger out there. So we have to focus on supporting both the power bloggers and the casual bloggers.
I was really surprised to see that Blogger only makes up 2%. According to our feedback from Blogsy users, the number of people using Blogger is a much higher percentage.
Platforms on this chart that Blogsy currently supports are WordPress (hosted & self-hosted), Movable Type, Drupal, Typepad, Blogger and Tumblr. Blogsy also supports Posterous, IBM Connections and Joomla (1.5) which are not found in the chart. And as for Gawker, BlogSmith, Scoop, and Didrot, we’re not familiar with these and no one has ever emailed asking for us to support them.
