the needs of a blogger

All this recoding of firsttube has gotten me thinking about the needs and wants of the typical blogger. See, I don’t get livejournal and blogger users- the majority of them are just keeping an online diary. Worse off, the content is tripe – entries like “went to the mall with Jordy today, it rawked. we <3 shoos!” Ultra lame.

So I pondered this: what does the average blogger really want? Do they care about a valid rss feed? Do they give a crap about the code? No. They care about this: a nice, pretty, clean interface and the ability to quickly and easily add and edit their posts.

So I will add the boldify and italify and underlinify and linkify functions to Flip Lite, and start thinking about what in Flip Lite gets to graduate to Flip c2.
