Best Blog Software for Writers

Publish date:

Hi Writers,
I want to thank everyone who stopped by and left a comment on my 20 Tips for Good Blogging post. I've learned so much from your comments and I'm going to address many of the intriguing questions and comments you've contributed. A few of the things I'm going to explore on the blogfront over the next few weeks:

• How do you keep your word count down to 300 words a post?
• How do you keep your blog positive when you're writing about a serious topic?
• Does it make sense for fiction writers to post full stories on their blogs?

To continue this great dialogue, today I'd like to ask you all to contribute your thoughts and opinions about the best blogging software for writers (we're talking serious diy here).

I've been fortunate in my blogging career to have a tech crew setting things up and addressing issues for me. But I'm venturing out to start a blog of my own for freelancing, and have been researching my many options. I've pretty much come to the conclusion that I don't need a full-fledged website—I can do most of what I want to do with a blog.

Some of my requirements:
• A nice, clean design
• User-friendly for a non-techie
• My own URL

So I want to hear from all of you who have started blogs. What's the best blog software option out there? Please vote in the poll here, and of course, please leave your comments on the subject.

Let the polls begin!

Keep Writing,
