Advice wanted – blogging platforms?

4 thoughts on “Advice wanted – blogging platforms?

    1. I’d like to be able to embed things like the little Amazon widget that shows a picture of the book and the link, as opposed to just the text link, and I want something that doesn’t keep trying to integrate itself with Facebook. I’m dismayed that there’s no way to turn off the new ‘comment with Facebook’ button on the comment form unless I restrict commenting to WordPress users only. I’m happy with a lot of the things WP does, like the threaded commenting and photo hosting and the sidebar widgets, but there’s just been a buildup of things that irk me. I want more control in general and less feature creep.

      I suspect the answer is hosting some kind of blogging software on my own domain, but my technical skills aren’t really up to that so I’d like to avoid it if possible.
