Summary
It's been a good run, but the WYSIWIG editing facilities of Blogger have lured me away from Artima.

Goodbye Artima!

I had a Python-related post which I was going to post here, but halfway through editing the post I decided that I much preferred the slick WYSIWIG editor of Blogger. Since I have a Blogger blog anyway for my non-Python-related musings, putting up with Artima's Web-1.0-style editing form just isn't worth it. Sorry, Bill! I'll keep reading Artima for the Java contents.

I use Blogger, and the WYSIWYG features caused me nothing but pain, so I stopped using them.

Although it isn't WYSIWYG, one thing I've found very valuable on Artima is being able to blog using Restructured Text. Like they use in the Python docs.

However, I do tend to have a lot of code in my blogs, so that may affect your choice.
