Pussy Ranch Has Left the Building

Diablo Cody has relocated her blog, Pussy Ranch, from CityPages to Blogger.

If you haven’t read her stuff, check it out. Hilarious.

She says the reason for her move was the pain of uploading photos to the Citypages server. I can’t say that I have experience with that, but I can tell you that Blogger may not be the #1 choice for blogging. Personally, I think she would have been better off going with a WordPress hosted blog. That would give her more control over images and site design than what Blogger offers.

Looking at the state of local media site’s blogging platforms, I have to say that most of them suck or haven’t really been thought out. They’re missing basic stuff like comments, trackbacks, easy image or video embedding, RSS feeds (or at least well designed RSS feeds), and limited integration with the rest of the sites.

If I had to name one local media site with the poorest blogging strategy to date, I’d say the Pioneer Press holds that title. It’s a mess.

  1. I especially like how the PiPress and Strib offer you the option to bookmark stuff with del.icio.us, but the links don’t last more than a couple weeks.
