Creating a Blog from scratch with ASP.NET MVC
Why "re-invent the wheel" when there are so many off-the-shelf solutions available? Many web sites offer a free blog service, and there are numerous open-source blog engines available to download. The explanation is simple. If it can be done in less than 60 minutes with ASP.NET MVC, why not try it?
Is one hour an exaggeration? Don't take my word for it; try it yourself. (An un-edited video showing the whole process will be posted later.) There may be some extra features that we would want to add to the basic blogging functionality. But it can all be done in about an hour, without rushing anything.
I created my blog as an experiment.
