This is a little bit of an experiment for me. My usual blog over on Blogger has been good to me, but there are a few things that make me unhappy: the difficulty in backing up or exporting your data, the lack of cut tags, apparently no working Linux applications that can seamlessly talk to Blogger.

So I’ll be testing out WordPress for a while. I like that they are more open than Blogger: they have a export-your-data facility. And cut tags. And you can schedule posts to happen in the future. And other goodness, of which I have barely began to explore.
