    I want to create a personal website that will contain a blog. I want the blog to be ON-SITE and not hosted on blogger.com or wordpress or anything like that. What is the best on-site blogging tool? I just need basic features like adding/editing post, comment area, etc. An example of pretty much exactly what I'm looking for: http://fourhourworkweek.com/blog Thanks.

    I recommend a self-hosted Wordpress.

    You have to use a Wordpress template though don't you? I'd like to implement the blog into the layout of my current site. Can I do that with Wordpress? Thanks.

    as far as I'm concerned there is absolutly NOTHING better than wordpress.. I mean, its almost a given... and I took the liberty of looking at your example, and it is wordpress...

    Haha sweet thanks for that man. Do you have any pointers on how he got it to fit in his custom web design so well? That is my main concern. Thanks again.

    I have many blogs on my white hat sites. all of them are using Wordpress.
    Learning curve is easy
    Lots if free plugins to make them perform well in Search Engines
    Lots of paid or free themes available
    And if needed, help (free or paid ) is easy to get
