My name is Joel Gillespie. I presently have a blog with MSN Spaces - http://spaces.msn.com/members/joelblog. I am trying to figure out a way to move out of the MSN Spaces system. I blog with the local community mostly in view, and MSN Spaces makes commenting back and forth with non MSN people a total pain in the neck. But, it is pretty idiot proof, so it was easy for a moron like me to to get into. There are two features I like very much in MSN Spaces. I like having multiple photo albums. I do not mind if I have to rebuild them from scratch. I just want to be able to have them. I like lists. I am list crazy. Links, favorite songs, web sites I like, great guitar leads, good local blogs, favorite movies, etc. I have to be able to do lists. I don't even mind if I have to rebuild all my lists (dread the thought). But I got to have more lists, baby (I used to have a list of favorite songs with cowbell, which explains that last sentence). I kind of would like to be able to move my archives over, but if that can't be done automatically, I'll just repost most of them all at once on the same afternoon and drive the local aggregators totally nuts. That will be fun. Pages and pages and pages of my posts! It maketh me giggle. But I have read and read and asked and asked and can't figure out a way to do these things with Wored Press. Oh, and I like three columns with the blog in the middle. I even started an account. Any ideas? firstname.lastname@example.org.
