New Tool is a site that allows users to easily make comparison charts that are embeddable, interactive, and ready for social bookmarking. For example, the 2008 Presidential candidates are compared here. Below is what yours or a public chart looks like.

Blog Platform Comparisons

Play around with this and check out how you can interact with the organization of the charts and how users of your future charts will be able to interact!

We Aim to Please

See, this post is a two-fer… you learned a new tool AND learned about how blog platforms differ from one another! At AG, we aim to please!

    Very, very cool tool.

    A few WordPress notes b/c that is the one with which I have familiarity – I know that the admin panel customization, photo plugins and captcha are available via plugins, you can edit templates offline (but it’s not for the faint-of-heart – or skill) and you can write offline- assuming that you have a client such as ecto (which I highly recommend).

    I can see implementing this Tablefy for evaluating multiple offers … 🙂

    Lani the line “Number of blogs”, what do you mean by this? Also what do you mean by “Design Skins”?

    For sure you are incorrect about editing templates offline for WP. I actually have my computer set up as a “local host” and do all my edits on the computer first, then most them live. No reason to mess up a live blog with a coding error.

    Blogger provides RSS, search, and post scheduling.

    Also worth noting that WordPress since 2.5 does photo galleries and, with its new theme directory, offers far more skinds/designs.

    I heard a rumor that is doing away with blogs due to liability. Can anyone confirm?

    Luckily those seeking questionable legal advice pertaining to real estate still have Trulia Voices. 🙂

    @Frank – liability for what? Both blogs?

    Lani- Talk about (sort of) unintended consequences. Tablefly looks really interesting, but it seems that the data is supplied by the person creating the table, which makes it possible suspect or incomplete. Like the platform table which seems (according to the comments above from people who know much more then I) to have some small deficiencies. But what a great tool for a real estate professional to use to compare selling with another limited services company their own company, and selling privately – Or for a broker to use to compare the benefits of working with one broker as opposed to anohter, or perhaps to show a seller how your internet marketing program compares to another.
    Nice tool for tons of stuff.

    um, okay, I think there is a line missing from this post that says this is tablefly’s ‘example’- not ours, we did not create this, Lani is simply letting folks know it’s there for use as some brokerages and agents actually have various levels of service…. we intentionally did not create an example because what you create is up to you- sorry for any misunderstandings.

    Lani – thanks for the great comparison and identifying another tool in our arsenal. 🙂

    Another timley post for me, I was just searching for good ways to use tables in WordPress. Thanks for the tip! Now if I could only find a good way to host an Agent Roster. I know I could use a table, but I’m looking for more admin controls than just a table. Auto-add user types from WP into the roster, add social media sites such as twitter, linkedin, etc… Send me a tweet if anyone knows of such a WordPress plugin ( or @bnix)

    Why typepad basic? I use pro, which turns no into yes. Started on the basic but upgraded in a couple of weeks, it was just too basic.

    @brad – the only WP plug in I know of that does SOME of what you refer to doesn’t support v2.5
