    WordPress is the best and once you get used to how it is it is very easy.

    I have seen Wordpress in the use by a lot of top250 companies and blog sites. It is quite customizable to their needs.

    So is Wordpress still the best? I need something that I can edit and have it look like my web site.

    I totally agree! I downloaded Wordpress the other day, but took me a while to familiarize myself with what is where. Editing each PHP file is so last year. I wish they have a template system like vB, but hey I managed. The plugin system is pretty cool, just upload the entire folder and the script recognizes it. They have a plugin that will integrate Gallery2 to WP. I haven't tried it though.

    My newly created blog for the t-shirt company that I run with a couple of friends, using what else but WordPress, http://www.teerrific.com/blog.

    Definitely. I know vB's HTML and my own product's HTML very well. Using anything else is so much work .

    I use blogspot instead of using blogging software. I've only recently started blogging within the past few days or so.

    So addictive

    One thing that sucks about Wordpress is that if you don't use caching *which is difficult to set up I find* it can cause a lot of excesssive serverload.

It took a few days to do, though, to figure out the weird file-based template inheritance system .

    MovableType renders everything to flat HTML files, which means that every single time you change something, you will need to republish. Restructured the way your archive looks? You'll need to republish your entire blog. Not fun when you have thousands of entries.

    Think of WordPress as MovableType minus the PERL and the republishing hassles. The only thing I can't get past about WordPress is its skinning system. But maybe that's because I haven't really gotten used to it yet.
