Blogger? Movable Type? WordPress?

I'm trying to get opinions of the current state of internet publishing. As you can see I'm using Blogger which is cool but gets a little frustrating from time to time when I want to expand and do something a little creative but hey, it's free. I'm looking for a reasonable (cheap) way to transfer all my web site and blog files on to one host. The current one, well, sucks. The host should already have the chosen publishing platform pre-installed for an easy move. I would like this to be as hassle free as possible so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ready to take the leap so soon? Well, you've read about my troubles with TextDrive, though they are relatively minor in the scheme of things. I have to say I'm a big fan of WordPress despite the little database glitches. It's free, it's flexible, and you have ultimate control. But do you want all that power? With great power comes hours and hours of tweaking HTML and CSS.

That's what I don't want. Do you regret making the transition from Blogger? I would like to keep it as simple as possible without too much tweaking so maybe Blogger is not so bad after all. I just read a scathing article on Movable Type...

I don't regret making the leap at all. Once you get things set up the way you want, it isn't that much maintenance. I haven't touched a line of code in months because I've been so busy and everything has held together fine. It's really up to you how deeply you want to get into tweaking your site. You can go with a ready-made template and it would be virtually no work at all. But if you aren't looking for more control over your site, why leave Blogger?

Yeah, I'm just seeing what is possible. The more I tweak the more I see what Blogger can do and it seems fine for now. It's my host that can be problematic. I think I'm just going to have to get on the phone and deal with being patched through to India.
