Greetings. If anyone happens to stumble across this blog, I am experimenting with Blogger, to see if has the capabilities I would like. I currently have a site with MSN Spaces -- http://spaces.msn.com/members/joelblog.
I want very much to move out of the MSN Spaces system. I blog with the local community mostly in view, and MSN Spaces makes commenting back and forth with non MSN people a pain in the neck. But, it is pretty idiot proof, so it was easy getting into.
There are two features I like very much in MSN Spaces.
I like having multiple photo albums. I do not mind if I have to rebuild them from scratch. I just want to be able to do that.
I like lists. I am list crazy. Links, favorite songs, web sites I like, great guitar leads, good local blogs, favorite movies, etc. I have to be able to do lists. I don't even mind if I have to rebuild all my lists (dread the thought). But I got to have more lists, baby (I used to have a list of favorite songs with cowbell, which explains that last sentence).
I kind of would like to be able to move my archives over, but if that can't be done automatically, I'll just repost most of them all at once on the same afternoon and drive the local aggregator dude totally nuts. That will be fun. Pages and pages and pages of my posts!
Oh, did I say I a don't know much in the way of html and can't really do a lot on the tweaking end of things.
