WeblogMatrix – Compare them all

WeblogMatrix – Compare them all does not quite do what it says on the tin. As Phil Bradley points out it does not include LiveJournal or Typepad. Nevertheless, it does help you identify the most appropriate blogging software for your needs. If you already have a shortlist you can compare features side by side – assuming, of course, that they are included in the 25 blog services covered by this site. You should be able to identify likely candidates for your shortlist by clicking on Search and selecting criteria.This worked the first time I tried it a couple of weeks ago but today keeps coming up with the same two packages regardless of what I select. Hopefully that is a temporary glitch.

There is a similar service for wikis at http://www.wikimatrix.org/ .
