The blog has a review of dasBlog as part of their review series on blogging software. The review is quite positive. Here is the summary:

DasBlog is a suprisingly fully-featured system. For simplicity and features it beats bBlog, it's closest rival in terms of target market, and has some features that Movable Type even lacks. Bigger picture though I can't see a general user choosing this over MT or Wordpress.

It is definately (sic) a good choice for someone looking for a single .NET based blog though. Knowing that CommunityServer is not aimed at single bloggers, in the single .NET blog scenario I would say DasBlog is the top choice.

Thanks to Vasanth for the link!

And they definitely can't spell "definitely".

I guess that's all part of blog performancereing or something.

If only dasBlog didn't overflow the text outside the right of my browser window. Probably because I have large fonts turned on, or something? (I actually use those features that make stuff look bigger, because my eyes are as old as my hair, and anyone looking at my picture can tell that's pretty old.)

That's not DasBlog, it's my large pictures and stylesheet. I need to work on it.

All I can say is XHTML compliance.

That's on our roadmap, but let me ask you this:

What does XHTML compliance buy you other than good feelings?

A tableless design that looks good in all browsers and allows me to completely change the look of my blog by only modding the stylesheet?

Performancing is a nice little add-in. For a *much* more advanced blog editor, check out RocketPost:

It supports dasBlog. I designed it.
