I decided to go with Blogger (rather than any of the other also good free choices) for a few reasons:
- Part of my annoyance with my old setup was that I was sick of dealing with configuring and tweaking it. Blogger is entirely turnkey, including hosting it on my own domain.
- I already have code that will upload my blosxom files into Blogger if I decide to do the full switch, using the Blogger API.
- I work for Google, I know some of the Blogger folks and it's good to use your own products, even if I don't work on Blogger itself.
