| | Wordpress is easy to use
I agree - just jump in with Wordpress and you'll find it very easy to use. It has most of the major features that blogger has, along with hundreds of plugins that are easy to add.
I also like Drupal which is a full blown CMS, because it's like having Wordpress for blogging along with built-in forums, polls, pages, etc. It's almost as easy to use as Wordpress too.
I'm new to this forum - is it ok to post links? I have created a tutorial for installing either Wordpress or Drupal. It's easy to do, but it's nice to have some screenshots and instructions if it's your first time. Just let me know if you'd like the link, or post any questions you have along the way and I'll try to help answer them.
