I signed up for a blog at WordPress, though there's nothing there as yet. From time to time I've thought of getting a personal blog. There are few restrictions on what I can write here, beyond the basic guidance to use good judgment. But I believe that since it's hosted on sun.com it reflects somewhat on the company, and also that readers here are more likely to be interested in information somehow related to computers. So some topics seem out of place here to me, though different bloggers make different judgments on what they will write about.
It was hard to choose between Wordpress and Blogspot and both looked like they would do the job. More serious blog sites and hosted software would be overkill for my casual and intermittent writing. The main drawback of Wordpress.com I read about was that it's difficult to customize the blog beyond the basic templates. No problem for me since I'm not overly concerned with the look and feel, other than an extreme dislike of uber-chic sites which use dark grey 7 point font on mottled black backgrounds.
