I admit I am curious about WordPress. Coming in after Movable Type, it has certainly generated almost as big a buzz. Not that I could handle either WordPress or Movable Type; both require a fair bit of knowhow, I am told.
And, anyway, I love my TypePad. Being on TypePad, one can discover interesting blogs just by checking its Recently Updated Weblogs column. Besides, it is easy to post pictures, create categories, and one gets indexed automatically, using TypePad.
However, posting and publishing and changing templates are easiest on WordPress, done almost instantaneously, I believe. If anyone is tempted to try it out, there are free WordPress hosts. WordPress does not advertise them, carrying paid advertisements from commercial WordPress hosts instead. But I came across one free WordPress host while browsing the Electronic Frontier Foundation — Blogsome. It has been around for some time, but there’s a new kid in town. Reading the Blog Herald, I discovered another free WordPress host: WordPress.com. The two may have rather limited features but they are free.
