    Easy to use news reel/blog for website?

    Hello,

    Our CMS has a html editor that is none to friendly for non-technical admin staff to use. So I thought I would create as much content as possible in easy to use applications and embed the content in the website with an iframe. For example, I have created a google calendar and embeded it in the school website.

    Does anybody know of a service that allows you to create a blog of weekly news, and embed the content into the school site?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Ben

    I used to solve this problem with Blogger and its RSS feed.

    Similiarly Wordpress has an RSS feed- and you could host this yourself, even use it directly and theme it in such a way that people don't notice that part of your site is Wordpress (doing away with the iFrames).
