My blog engine

In order to educate myself, I decided to write my own blog engine. It’s driven by SQL Server and ASP.NET (written in C#). Unlike other blog engines that I tried, I decided that instead of having the engine controlling the structure of my website, I could create a couple of ASP.NET controls that a user could place anywhere in a Web Form, hence separating the HTML page design from the blog engine.

The steps for posting an entry into my blog:

  • Write this using outlook;
  • Post it automatically through www.newsgator.com to my custom plugin;
  • Post it via a Web service to my blog engine and store it in the blog database.

Comments are also supported. RSS and Atom feeds are provided. Some more work may be required there. As I find more time, I will work on more blog-related features.
