I was just reviewing the list of Oracle related blogs I subscribe to. Here they are in approximate chronological order with the blogging platform. Apologies for any inaccuracies.

A couple of things struck me…

  • Mark Rittman was one of the first Oracle bloggers (if not the first) and uses the Movable Type platform. Not one Oracle blogger has chosen to follow suit (ever). I wonder why.
  • Most Oracle bloggers use blogger.com which is a hosted platform but most are not afraid to tweak their templates with varying degrees of success. Think garish colours, think ‘Changing Rooms’.
  • The birth of Tom Kyte’s blog seemed to inspire a lot of Oracle bloggers to follow suit.

Anyway, thanks to all of you for the information, the technical content, the thoughts, the ramblings and perhaps most importantly, the humour.
