Movable Computer Vet

I’ve finally done something with the free F2O hosting I got a few weeks back. I’ve installed and started playing with Movable Type, setting up a second weblog over there. I don’t know how long I’m going to lead a double life, but I might write in both places for a while. I’m already writing about some of my Movable Type experiences over there. And then…I’ll just play it by ear.

My short review of Movable Type so far is that it’s nice. It’s better than Blogger in a lot of ways, and it gives you more control over many aspects of your weblog. But that also makes it more complicated. Blogger can’t be beat for it’s simplicity. And Blogger actually has some text formatting tools, like bold and italic, where MT has absolutely nothing. So, each of them have quite a few checkmarks in both the pro and con columns. The jury will be out for a while on which one I’ll end up using here. Or, I might just take the best of the both of them and write my own system. I don’t know yet. If I could see the future, I sure wouldn’t be wasting my time here.
