I have set up websites with many technologies, from hard coded HTML, WordPress, Drupal, asp.net, even an IBM AS/400, but blogspot is a hands down choice for a fast, easy, effective web presence. Free without advertising in fact.
I spoke about blogspot at Podcamp Toronto 2011 to share what I have learned with others.
Now, I am a PC / Windows guy. Ever since those AS/400 days. But walking into a room with 21 iMacs sitting dourly on desks, silently ignoring you by facing the back wall and refusing to turn around, THAT is freaky. I had to raise my BlackBerry Torch over my head to ward off the evil spirits.
