I have used iBlog on my Mac before…. a pretty slick client based blogging software… but it’s just too buggy. Chris seems to be having a lot of fun with TypePad, so I thought I should try this out. I am most interested in the mblog, mobile blogging interface. We’ll see how it goes.
Few things from the product point of view is a little weird:
When I first signed up, I can see there are 3 different kinds of packages, but it’s really hard to tell what’s in each one of them. I have to open a separate web browser just to see what the 3 packages are.
I’ve already have the domain georgechen.com I want to use it with this blog, I can’t seems to find a way to map that… Can’t find that in help. Maybe it’s due to the 30 days free trial nature?
One also has to understand how Blog really works… Even though Type is aim for consumer, there are still some weird features and functions being divided and arranged in different part of the Control Panel, and the saving grace of TypePad is the great inline help pretty much all over the various pages…
I am sure I will find out more weird things about TypePad.
