recently announced a new Beta version of their blogging service
Polywogg, which was rewritten exclusively for Mac OS X v10.3 (Panther). Version 0.8f features video blogging with iSight Web cams, integration with iPhoto, the ability to “photograph” a Web page as a PDF and post it on your blog, automatic syndication of journal content through the Web and RSS, and more.
This new iteration of Polywogg is the latest stage in a development process that MacCentral first reported on
last November, when the first Beta was announced. Aside from dropping support for Mac OS X v10.2 (Jaguar), the basics of the service have remained the same: You download a desktop application that allows you to create blog entries, complete with digital movies and pictures, audio files, PDFs, rich-text documents, and more. You can also customize your blog’s look and set up a public profile, and Polywogg allows you to maintain multiple blogs or work with others to run a single journal.
In addition, Polywogg introduces you to a worldwide community of other Mac-based bloggers. You can search for them by age, location, or interests and build a list of bloggers whose thoughts you want to read on a regular basis. Anyone can visit the Polywogg site to read all the blogs and post comments.
Polywogg is a US$15 per year service, with the first year free for .Mac members. If you’re not a .Mac member, you’ll need another publicly accessible WebDAV server to host your content.
