I’ve experimented with a few different tools for blogging over the past few years. Wordpress seems to meet my basic needs:
- Web-based – Its in the cloud, so I can get to it from anywhere and don’t have to run my own server
- Easy to Use – Not just to write one blog and easily adjust the themes, but to manage multiple blogs
- Free – C’mon, lets be realistic; why pay for something when there are perfectly good tools out there?! When I need more, I’ll buy into a more advanced platform, but for 90% of us out there, WordPress works.
Now, if it only took dictation so I could rant from my cell phone rather than actually sit down and type this, maybe I’d update it more than a few times per year 😉
