I’m starting a new political blog and I was wondering how people felt about the various extant platforms out there? I already have a Blogger blog, and it’s… fine… I guess. I definitely want something that will allow me to buy the domain actionabespoliticalblog.com so I’m pretty sure tumblr is out, (it’s out anyway because people have preconceptions of a tumblr blogger that I would rather they not have.)
Beyond that, what’s out there? I’ve wrestled with Wordpress the way Jacob wrestled with God, but I’ll give it another shot if people tell me that the Automattic managed domain is decent.
I could handcraft something out of luxuriant HTML/PHP alphabet soup, but I’m rusty and just… don’t… wanna.
