i listened to coreintuition the other day - and i would totally love to pay for a blogging service (by red-sweater :).
i know how to set up my own server and i'm not to greedy to pay for it, but it is timeconsuming and annoying. and i know i would spend days to choose the best provider, the best software, to install the best plugins, figure out the most secure configuration, research css-hacks, backup everything, keep everything updated,...
on the other hand i hate those "free" blogging services like wordpress.com or blogger that pollute your blog with ads and act like they were doing you a favour in letting you use their services while you generate their income.
so i would be glad to pay a monthly subscription fee for a simple blogging service. someone can recommend anything?
