Looking for: Blogging tools

I usually would search for it on my own. I've done some searching but have come out empty handed. But, with online friends like you, maybe you guys could help me out.

I'm looking for a service similar to tag-board.com or shoutboxes.com that will allow visitors to a website to send feedback via email. Yup, you read it right -- email. I'm doing some sort of experiment and this is one ingredient of my experiment. I played around with sideblog.com in the past, but I didn't find a feature that allowed email posting.

I'm also looking for a way to put three of my latest na-gets on the side bar of Technobiography.

Help, anyone? Any referral links or services?

Thanks!

Edwin

    If you were using MT, pMachine, WP or EE, madali lang yan. Create a separate blog then insert it as a side blog either as php include or as server side include. Meaning you need either php or SSI enabled pages. Since these programs allow notification by e-mail, ayos na. But this is blogger and the limitations are so many...

    Oo nga, eh, sassy. Nalilimitahan na ako ng blogger. [sigh]. But don't have the time nor patience yet to migrate to WordPress.

    I'm hoping blogger will shape up. hopefully soon and before i invest time in setting up another blog elsewhere.

    thanks, sassy ... the search still continues ...

    punta ka sa bravenet.com
    may tools doon na quickmail na pwede mong ilagay sa side panel ng blog mo :)
    you just have to join there..
    :)
    but if you have your blog hosted on a paid hosting.. meron na doong CGIEMAIL.. which is a rather geeky stuff by the way.. or.. a shorter PHP script which is much better kasi marami pang arte sa CGIEMAIL.. hehe.. :)

    red door!

    last i checked with sideblog (last week), di pa nila ginagawa yung post via e-mail. sayang nga, eh, sideblog would have been a good choice.

    yung bravenet naman, wala pa rin akong nahanap na katulad ng kailangan ko: tag-board na via e-mail. (siguro dahil napaka-specialized ng hanap ko).

    Cheers!

    Just saw sideblog.com. They now have the feature I've long been looking for: e-mail to sideblog.

    But the e-mail to sideblog is a premium feature.

    Let me write Chris and see if I could strike up something.
