Blogging software advice please.


[link to this post]
 
I would like some advice please.

The biggies seem to be Blogger (Google on inhouse servers). Tumblr also on inhouse, and Wordpress inhouse or on your own host.

I'm not too keen on Google, or any inhouse service. I'd rather use my usual host - Tsohost. But Wordpress seems to have a bit of a bad security reputation. On the other hand Wordpress claims to have iPxxx and Android apps, which sounds useful.

I'm not too fussed about it being Linux or Windows based as Tsohost have both. Free software preferred, but if it is better and not too expensive I suppose I would go for it. Especially if it has a trial period.

I want to post, and receive comments. With the ability to moderate them if necessary. In time I may be happy to allow others to do opening posts, but I haven't thought a lot about that.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.2/15.2Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Hi,

I'm thinking about resurrecting my blog as there's a lot of issues I want to talk about (although slightly torn about whether to use TBB blog instead; some of the stuff is not TBB related but it might be better to focus on developing one set of content rather than multiple tongue)

If I do resurrect my own blog, I was very tempted to move it into a hosted service (a la google) actually rather than keeping it on my own server--security is a pain with own setups.. but also I'm not sure there's a huge benefit.. still unsure though.

I wasn't meaning a server run by me seb. Fully hosted at Tsohost was what I had in mind, like RobertoS site. Their support is excellent, and they do backup daily.

Their main security should be OK, and they do give some tips on additional security steps to take for Wordpress - I haven't had any other suggestions yet. They claim to be hosting over 10,000 installations of it.

In fact, I've just found a walk-through of a typical installation for dummies. I think I may just go and read it .... tongue

It isn't going to be anything to do with broadband, but I'm hoping will not be a total dead duck at birth.

Thanks for the input however.
