It’s hard to beat a blogging system when it’s the #1 open source blogging system in the entire universe. So it’s not much of surprise when I say that Elgg’s blogging platform doesn’t even come close to BP’s, because it’s built on WP. I wouldn’t call Elgg’s blogging system useless, though. Think of it as a means to an end: You want to write and publish your thoughts on the WWW and don’t care too much about categories, tags, mixed media or formatting… in that case, Elgg is your baby — for some people that’s just enough. If you want just more control over said thoughts, it’ll be very hard to beat BP. On the flipside, I have yet to find out how to get rid of the “Just another BuddyPress Testdrive webblog” under my blog listing on BP — I have deleted that blog entry and yet it’s still there.
