What is your favourite blogging platform?

Mine is probably blogger since it's the easiest to use. In terms of functionality it probably isn't as rich as a Wordpress that's installed on your server, but you don't have to deal with complicated templates and version updates. Another bonus is that I can use the same login as my Google login and my blog is linked to my Google profile - that's one less account password to remember.

What is your fave blogging platform or what are you using right now?

I love Wordpress but I think that's a matter of branding for me.  I dislike the look of Blogger so I spent time to learn Wordpress.  I think once you do, it's hard to use anything else.  Wordpress has the best features, most updates, most plugins and is fairly simple for someone like me to SEO so you can get found.

While it isn't usually considered a traditional "blogging" platform, I love the flexibility of a Joomla installation and if configured correctly - it can be a seamless, secure, simple platform to blog with. My greatest concern with Wordpress is the increase in hacked websites through its security holes. It's at the point where a bot can hack a Wordpress site and set it up as a spam point.

With Joomla configured using it's base settings with categories, articles, and users - it's one of the more secure platforms to use. With it's expanse of plugins it can be easy for someone with little web knowledge to power-up their website, and for developers ----- sky's the limit.

I do have several wordpress sites. However, I have also used LinkedIn (a while ago). I think their offering has gone down hill a bit from when they originally launched it. However, I do enjoy the Medium platform. It has nice twitter integration. I also enjoy the way you can highlight meaningful parts of articles to help you recall them later.

WordPress is the best platform and easy to use - but true you need to be a bit of a web designer and when you buy a template and if you don't have any coder skills you might find difficult to updated - my best advice choose carefully a template :) have fun.

I have just converted from Blogger to WordPress and it was the best thing I have ever done. In my research I found serious bloggers, which I am, tend not to use Blogger. Then I had a colleagues BLOG removed by Google for no apparant reason and years of hard work disappeared overnight.

I decided to take control of my own destiny, registered my own domain and set up WordPress. It took me a day to do the conversion (I do have some technical skills) and have not looked back.

I love to hate wordpress but in reality it's a great little tool.
It's easy to use and update (even my mum can do it) and there are heaps of sexy plugins.
Also it's already so SEO friendly that it doesn't take much (other than awesome content) to get yourself reasonably well ranked in the SERPS.

Nope, I probably should but generally if I like a blog I'll follow it on Twitter or FB as that's where I 'live'.
