What Blogging Platform Do You Use?

A few weeks ago, I asked you if any of you were bloggers, and like I thought, a whole lot of you are and you responded enthusiastically about your blogs. Now I'm interested in the more nitty-gritty aspects — no, not what you're blogging about, but where!

Specifically, on which platform? Are you Google-lovers and stuck on Blogger (or former Blogspot users)? Did you fall for WordPress or TypePad, or MoveableType? Or are you on Tumblr or something else? If so, what do you like or not like about your chosen writing platform?

I've tried several of these, but WordPress is the ONLY way to go - so easy to use, so incredibly customizable . . . I just love it! I have several blogs on WP, but my main one is

I'm not big into blogging. I'm just not into the whole "letting everyone know what you're doing and where you're at 24/7" I find it annoying.

Been on LJ since 2000 and still going strong. Just recently started using Blogger and I cross post between the two.

I've been using blogger since day one and I've been moving to wordpress for the past two years (go figure). But I've also looked at vox so I can link it to my N95. Decisions, decisions, decisions...

I use wordpress, though I considered vox and blogger...i used to have a livejournal, but I've since abandoned it. I like the stats page you get with wordpress...something about finding out how popular you are...

Wordpress? Blogger? Seriously? Try something that is actually amazing as a CMS as opposed to these entry-level tools. ExpressionEngine is where it's at.

Blogger, since it's hooked-up with my Gmail.

i LOVE my tumblr! I've tried blogger and wordpress and both were okay, but I never kept up with them. I might resurrect one of them to use as a professional/grad school blog, but it's still in major transition as of now. I do still have my LJ from my college days which I update to keep in touch with all my friends on there, but I just don't like it anymore. although, I am working on a way to import my tumblr to my LJ to make it all a bit easier.

I use Wordpress, but I also use the LivePress plug-in to replicate my entries on LiveJournal (which is where most of my friends are).

I alternate between xanga and livejournal...not sure which on I prefer though.

I'm another LiveJournal user. I joined because all my friends were there and have stayed because it's just so easy to use. The filters are a great feature, not just for my own privacy, but also to manage my friends list.

I use Typepad. I used to have a blogspot blog, but i think Typepad is better (it should be, considering it's not free ;) ). If any of you read French... Check it out! (i also bought a .fr so it could feel more "personal)...

I went from Xanga to Blogger to Tumblr. I'm happy there and will probably keep it for quite a while! Before that I used my own website and just manually updated; I'm glad those days are over.

I've used Blogger for a while now (though I've had a livejournal) - I'm coming around to Tumblr, and have set up a separate blog, and love how easy it is to use and how clean and lovely it looks. It's got some great widgets for posting as well. I'm considering moving it al to tumblr.
enSue enSue 9 years for me. It easily and quickly became my favorite blogging platform (although I have tried others like LJ, Blogger and Wordpress). The Vox service is so rich in features and the social networking features and community are great.

Livejournal! I can't live without the privacy settings either.

LJ and Wordpress for the moment. But I've used them all (including vox and others), minus the tumblr.

I used WordPress for awhile, but have since switched to LiveJournal. The privacy filters are what sealed the deal for me. :)

i began with my own host and blogged by simply updating my site via FrontPage Express in 1997. since then, i've gone with blogger when it was first introduced, LJ,, blogsome, and so many others i cannot remember them all. then i did moveable type with my own host for a few years, and then back to blogger. i found wordpress and i love it. i write code and also design web pages, so manipulating the WP templates is very easy and fun.

livejournal. had my frist LJ years ago in high school, but deleted it when i realized how dramatic my writing style was. Tried Blogger a few months ago, but the templates weren't all that fun, so I went back to a VERY changed LJ. But i'm still happy with it, and I know all the functions. Will def look into the new ones mentioned.
