I’m using a combo of Poster Stack and Repository from inStacks Software as a great solution for blogs, podcasts and even image galleries.
For me personally it’s very useful for podcasts and generates a lovely rss feed for iTunes, Amazon and others - you just have to be aware of your bandwidth usage if you’re hosting on your own website - podcasts eat a load of bandwidth.
Repository gives you password protected folders so that you - or your customers can simply drag and drop content onto a page to instantly post on a Poster stack blog, it works a dream.
Here’s an example of a very simple and quick gallery site using Poster stack that I made for a friend.
He literally drops his content onto a Repository page and it publishes - fab!
Jannis who runs Instacks is incredibly helpful if you get stuck - I had a bit of trouble early on with curly quotes in my rss feed - they’re best avoided!
