Recently, I took a look at a number of weblog platforms and software toolsets to try and determine which would be the best for Somewhat Frank. I examined WordPress, the Six Apart offerings of Moveable Type and Typepad as well as few other vendors. I ended up going with TypePad since it seemed to allow me to launch my blog the most quickly with the least amount of set-up. I was going to perform more of an analysis but
found USC Anneberg's Online Journalism Review had already done an excellent job here, including this comparison chart. A special thanks to The Blog Coach for pointing it out to me here.
