I tried 3 or 4 content management systems and finally ended up with Drupalfor my site and for an open source PIC micro language site.
But Wordpress is my blogging platform. Wordpress and Windows Live Writer (WLW) are excellent companions.WLW works great with WP but has many problems including but not limited to inserting images with Drupal.
I started blogging in blogger. I moved to Wordpress for it's great looking default themes and it's default statistics plugin. I was using it for nearly 9 months. Then, I realized how one could edit the CSS/template to suit one's individual needs in blogger and how to use google analytics along with blogger. So, I moved back to blogger.
