I have played with WordPress once in the past. It was very newbie-unfriendly. So I used Tumblr. I’ve been happy with it. But, recently someone recommended that WP was “the best.”
Once again, I’m looking at WordPress. There are a lot of options that I would possibly use, but the big sticking point is custom domain mapping. I currently have my blog set as a subdomain on my home website. (blog.frenchdiaz.com) Tumblr does this for free.
WordPress wants $12/yr for the same thing. I don’t think so.
