Repost: see Podz' comment at bottom
I have been blogging for over two years with MT 2.64 (www.nopundit.com), and an still with it only because of inertia. Spam is out of control, authoring interface is clunky.
I bring that up only to give background. I envision making my life (and its attendant appointments, projects, and contacts) more manageable by using a blog as a sort categorical time manager and activity log.
What I would like to do is this. I want a blog which is essentially about me: myself.com. This would be the master blog. Within this blog would be a sort of subset blog: mycompany.com. Since my professional contacts are a large subset of my social contacts, and work activities need to mesh with personal activities, I would like to have a personal blog tool which "spawns" a work blog as seamlessly as possible. A huge benefit of having mycompany.com exist outside of myself.com is to have a public interface for my clients to see billable hours, orders, etc. in near real time.
One way to do this would be to have a category (and a subcategory tree below) on the blog myself.com called "mycompany". Posting into this category (and its subcategories) would automagically post (and categorize) to the blog mycompany.com as well. Thus one avoids the huge problem of data duplication and management of maintaining two separate contact lists and schedulers. One other way would be to have categories called "client1", "client2", etc. to granularize further. Same notion though.
So you see, I am kind of in between needing WP and WPmu. I can muddle, but I am not a coder (at least not for the last ten years). I am looking for the robustness of WP with (I think) features it does not yet have.
What do you think? Thanks in advance!!!
[For some reason unknown, the thread has shut itself. Ken - do you want to post this again so you can both get replies and respond ? I have emailed Matt to make him aware of this bug - it occurred a couple of days ago on another thread too. Sorry ! - Podz]
