A Lack of Blog Standards

I tried out PMachine.com blogging software tonight. Last week I had tried WordPress. There were a few key reasons I didn’t want to use it; the one that stands out most notably is that there was no solid way to keep comment spam at bay. So I ran PMachine through it’s paces and liked it. Then I realized that there is no facility to import old entries (like this one) into Pmachine or Expression Engine. That erked me a bit, knowing that my old entries would sit outside the new system. Then I realized that there would be no way to EXPORT my blog out of PMachine if I ever decided to switch. Damn lack of standards. This blog is currently maintained by hand… and I’m thinking it will continue that way. :-(
