    I started with Blogger and I moved from there to TypePad. I have started running a WordPress blog now for my business and so far I am not thrilled with it (aside from the fact that it is a pretty cool piece of software as an option) mainly because, as a fairly green user, it doesn’t give me options like TypePad’s main and extended post windows (so my posts tend to take up too much space on the WordPress blog) or really well integrated WYSIWYG formatting options. I am starting work on a MovableType test with a view to replacing the WordPress blog if I can get MT working properly.

    People rave about WordPress and I have seen some really well done sites which use WordPress but do green users like me have much of a hope of running something that looks so cool out the box? Is that an unrealistic expectation?

    Have you tried pressing the “more” tag which does that for you?

    or really well integrated WYSIWYG formatting options

    Have you tried the WYSIWYG plugin?
