Well their message seems to be both and they call it Jimdo

Working with WordPress for most of my blogs has been the norm for me, but I must say that Jimdo’s new beta blog feature has me intrigued. I am used to working with Jimdo for my main website at MaxHomeBits and now that they have finally rolled out their blog feature I think this will be an exciting time for me to integrate this feature into MaxHomeBits.

Jimdo still has a long way to go, that being said they are definitely on the right track. They already have an excellent CMS for their websites so adding a blog into the mix is a natural step to take. One of the features of the blog element is the ability to put a whole post or teaser onto any page.

What I also like about Jimdo’s Content Management System is the ability of the text editor to strip out formats or simply to integrate them into your document, no more copy and paste from desktop text editors. This is definitely one of my pet hates with WordPress.

As you can see from the features list below they have a lot of great elements. Once they move on to the next step and add more traditional blogging tools they should have a great system.

There are basically two things that you need to consider when choosing the topic of a membership site; (1) Passion about the subject (2) Level of demand for information about the subject.
