Description: Light, feature-packed weblog app with plugin extensibility
Blosxom (pronounced "Blossom") is a lightweight yet feature-packed
weblog application designed from the ground up with simplicity,
usability, and interoperability in mind.
Fundamental is its reliance upon the file system, folders and files as
its content database. Blosxom's weblog entries are plain text files
like any other. Write from the comfort of your favorite text editor
