i’ve been considering moving to using wordpress as my blog platform.
there are some things i would like to do as far as the website functionality that i just don’t see myself adding to my static site generator.
- a section for permanent essays.
- links to my other blog attempts
- rss / atom feed would be nice.
- comment system
- links to project download area(s)
- posting via email would be nice.
- data export capability.
i’ve been looking at the alternatives to wordpress.com today. in the realm of hosted blogging platforms there are the following:
- blogspot (blogger)
as far as self hosted possibilities:
- jekyll / octopress
probably self-hosted wordpress gives me the most options as far as the capabilities i want, but i don’t want to deal with the hassle of running my own wordpress install right now.
i’m trying to figure out if wordpress.com is a reasonable place to start with the idea of moving to self hosted wordpress when i want to, or whether the limitations of the wordpress.com platform will make me more frustrated than i want to deal with.
