    There's also Drupal, if you like pain and hours of fustration... in all seriousness it's the most powerful platform out there, but holy jeebus is it a pain in the ass.

    So wordpress will host the blogs for you for free, like blogger does?

    I want to spread my blog network around a bit to 3 or 4 free hosted sites, and then a couple on my own domains. Call me paranoid but I never want all my efforts in one place just in case some site goes down or is taken over or whatever. Also, I want to spread my footprints far and wide.

    The majority opinion seems to be Wordpress, and I concur. It has the best support and a long record of success. There seems to be no end of plugins and themes to work with and it is continually updated with new features and bug fixes.

    Wordpress, hands down. Becuz it has majority community support.

    question:
    How does web host define 'Spam'?

    do they consider autoblog as spam when they review the scripts you have?
