The London Times publishes its weblogs on TypePad. I just checked the URLs for the first time yesterday and, sure enough, they bore addresses starting with http://timescolumns.typepad.com/. That is the index file opening on a weblog about shoes, but dig deeper, and you will come across weblogs about travel, religion, books and more. They can be accessed from the Times web site, of course. The Times calls them weblogs, not blogs.
The Times weblog on books by TLS editor Peter Stothard makes pretty good reading. He is a fan of Bob Dylan and the Beatles and quotes from Like A Rolling Stone and writes about driving around London with his windows open and the music system blaring songs from Abbey Road. That turned quite a few heads and drew appreciative murmurs, he writes and wonders if Coldplay will have the same effect. He doesn’t think so –a man after my heart. Dylan and the Beatles (and Elvis Presley) forever! My blog is named after one of Dylan’s greatest songs: Blowin’ in the Wind. But let’s also not forget Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones in their prime, Simon and Garfunkel, and the Grateful Dead.
The Times is not the only London paper blogging on a Six Apart product. So does the Guardian, which has been blogging much longer. It uses Movable Type. That is not stated on the Guardian blogs which use addresses such as http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/news/ for the news blog and http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/culturevulture/ for the arts and culture blog. But view the Source on your IE browser or Page Source on Firefox and you will see the HtML file where it clearly says content="http://www.movabletype.org/".
