Good Blog sites

I have a blog on Blogger, but Google is messing with things so that I can't even get to the dashboard, so it is time to move on. Are there any good blog sites?

I've heard some people say that wordpress is pretty good. I haven't tried it myself, though.

Blogger is pretty reliable. I suspect you might find the problem is with your computer and reappears with a new site?

No, the problem is with what Google did. I had been using Blogger for some time, and it was O.K.. Google decided to "upgrade", and I couldn't get anywhere on my blog. Perhaps it works for other people, but it stopped working for me.

I've used both blogger and wordpress and like wordpress better. I find it's easier to use and I like the layouts more.

Wordpress would be the other big, mainstream blog site. A lot of people like it.

Wordpress looks good, and I'll keep it in mind.
