Yikes! I guess centralized blogging is a tempting target

Just changed the FTP passwords for the two blogs I manage through them... -_-

Ev says he's patched the hole so you'r probably ok for now. So I am curious, what is the biggest draw for Blogger users? Ease of Use?

In a word, yes. No trying to get CGI working on your machine, the blog is on a box that isn't under my control so CGI can be a problem...

Todd, it's a piece of cake to set up. It's also something that you can build on and customize about anyway you want if you get creative enough. I created my template to produce XML and I use PHP to do some fairly neat stuff with it. The editing environment is also better than just the plain textarea box I would have if I had built my own entry form.

Most likely I'll be moving to MT or the Flutterby CMS before long but for the past 22 months I've been able to blog and play without getting too involved in developing my own CMS.
