I've been poking at a bloxsom blog for awhile, but I'm giving up and doing the Blogger thing instead. Bloxsom isn't much work, but I kept messing with the CSS and other things. With Blogger, I have fewer options, which might get me focused on what's important.
Also, maybe a Blogger account will increase my chances of a coveted Gmail invite.
Really though, from what I can see, Blogger has 95% of what I want in a blog, with a lot less work. I don't want my blog to be so much work.
