Weblog software

I’m not at all unhappy with Movabletype—Mostly, I’m daunted with the idea of changing all those damn templates just to redesign the site. WordPress is sufficiently hackish and only has three templates, one of which is optional! Its installation is also far easier than Moveabletype’s, but it’s not as polished on the user interface side of things. Dean Allen’s Textpattern, meanwhile, just looks slick as can be. Bloxsom looks neat, too, and I like the way it uses straightforward text to do its work.
