I've finished installing Movable Type & have been playing around with it for several hours.
FYI Its only on my development computer. No, its nothing I intend to go live with. At least not in the immediate future.
I happen to like blogger. Even with all of its shortcomings. Simplicity.
That being said, the whole point of installing movable type was to check out what I've been missing. I've been playing around with the applications Ecto & MarsEdit lately, and it seemed to me that most of their advanced features weren't available to blogger.
From what I've seen so far, the MT system is very nice. Powerful. Flexible. So far, its almost all good. I'm sure that I'll find some quirks about it that I don't like, but I just haven't had time.
I took the time to post using MT, and manually uploaded it to the bustikated server for your viewing pleasure. I haven't customized ANYTHING in the template, so if it looks fresh from the box, it is.
