I’ve moved my blog from blogspot to a self-hosted WordPress installation.
No particular reason. I just wanted more control over the look and feel of the blog; as well as supporting features like trackback.
Currently running on a crappy old server running SLES 9 with WordPress, Apache, PHP and MySQL. Hopefully the hardware is reliable enough.
I’ll post more on how things progress.
Any reason why you chose wordpress, not Moveable Type, Typepad, or some other weird tool?
Just interested – I still use a subscription to Blogger for mine 😉 …
I just posted on this. Mainly personal preference rather than anything else.
