    Wordpress seems so well supported these days with lots of plugins - and free too.

    Congrats on your new sig links eamo. All those rushed one liners just for that?

    I moved from using Joomla / Wordpress to Drupal this year. Drupal has the features I need to run multiple websites, instead of managing multiple website installs, Drupal does it all.

    However it has a long way to go in terms of usability so its not for everyone.

    Yes Gavin, this is a public forum and generally, people post their opinions on them. Considering that I have received dozen of spam emails from this site trying to get me to sign up, is it not right that I can promote my sites as well as everyone else here. Or are you one of these forum bullies? I think I'll give you webmasers meet a miss.

    Well, if its really needed, why not? But for me, you should choose a good platform from the very first you start blogging.

    I may move from wp to movable type which is based on HTML static content publishing. There 2 very distinctive virtues of static content:

    1) It's static so much harder to be manipulated unless there's a system level breach.
    2) It costs much much much less server resources with regards to the same traffic.

    Hi Immediate,

    Very interested to read your thinking of moving from Wordpress to another platform. I’m currently playing around with WP on a site I haven’t finished yet and was finding it very cumbersome and slow to load the admin pages. Have you found their support forum very hard to negotiate?

    What’s Movable type like?

    Take care,

    PS sorry, I’ve gone off topic here

    How did that work out?
    Don't have a blog yet, but notice many migrating to Wordpress from Blogger
    MT4 is supposedly more flexible in page presentation possibilities than Wordpress?

    There's a clear segmentation / separation between the display (templates) and the underlying system, which means that you can do some pretty funky things at a design / presentation level without inadvertently compromising your security.
