Blog Studio: A New Blog Service

Thanks to this thread at MetaFilter, I’ve learned about a new blogging tool/service. Blog Studio offers a free and a paid version. You can see their feature list here. The blog tool feature comparison isn’t completely accurate, in my opinion, since many of the features they say Blogger or the sister Blogger Pro don’t support, are supported with just a little HTML use. It’s interesting too that Blog Studio seems to be targetting Blogger. There’s no mention of the more “journal” like systems, like Live Journal or the community-driven Grok Soup. Although I’m glad to see other blog tools and systems, I’m a little disturbed by their tone, but I’ll probably take a look when they’ve ripened a bit. Right now it’s pretty crude. The FAQs are up too.
