I’ve been trying to get my blogging software on my home machine to work. It was because it went on the blink, that I started looking around for alternatives and happened upon TypePad.
In reconstucting it (my home blog), I have come to appreciate even more, the way TypePad is put together. I’m starting to sound like a commercial for them. The fact is that both have their advantages and disadvantages. Having the blog on your home machine means that your blog is totally under your control. What you write is not in a server someplace else. That doesn’t seem to mean much nowadays, but there is an added sense of security to that.
The disadvantage, of course, is that you have to be home to make entries.
