There can be only one... blogging platform
Published November 9, 2010
At least that’s the way it seems.
An experiment to move I Heart Franck off Wordpress led me to Posterous, which is really good, but not for blogging. It’s great for uploading a picture or some kind of media and sharing it, which is what it is ultimately designed for.
As you know, dissatisfied with Wordpress I made the transition to Squarespace, and have found it mostly good, but there is a significant spam commenting problem. Every day I am having to check that spam comments have not found their way on to the site, and at least 70% of the time, there is something published that I would rather not be there.
I tweeted the company, and they said a revamped commenting system would be arriving at some point, presumably with better spam filters, but for a paid service, this seems to be a pretty poor showing.
Now I am pondering whether I made the jump to Squarespace on the basis of a font, and have done nothing but compromise ever since.
Not that Wordpress is perfect. By any stretch. But what else is there?
