Well, The way I see it you basically have two options. 1) Control everything yourself. In other words buy a domain and get your site hosted on a server and use B2 or Moveable Type. You can find free scripts out there for virtually anything you want to do and you don't necessarily have to be code-savvy to use them. I can recommend a few good hosting proivder if you are interested. 2) Sign on with an all-in-one type of blog service such as LiveJournal or Xanga. Both of these two services give you basically the same functionality as blogger except you get a commenting system built into the service. You also have additional functionality such as IP tracking, etc. Unfortunately, with blogger you are limited to regular HTML for the most part. Both of those involve leaving behind your current archives of writing to a certain exent. I guess you just have to weigh the importance of reliable commenting, etc Just my two cents. > >> Frank Patrick wrote: >>
