There are a number of major blogging platforms out there. WordPress, Blogger and a whole lot of others.
Why make my own? Because I thought it would be fun. And it was! Creating a basic blog isn't a big
deal, but adding several additional custom features made this project a lot more interesting. The EJBlog
includes server-side page caching, a custom user control panel, image upload and conversion scripts,
time and date-based posting, a custom comment system, an RSS feed, integrated social bookmarking and sharing links,
a tag system, automatic archive generation and the ability to search through posts based on titles and tags.
But what's a blog without interesting content? The live EJBlog can be read at

posts about science, technology, the Internet and lots of other stuff!
