[thelist] blogging software recommendations

But TypePad charges by the month, and seems to include hosting. 
If I chose TypePad, I would prefer to pay for it, install it myself on my
webhost and be done with it. But that is not an option, right?

TypePad doesn't have a free version, but anything it has blows Wordpress.com
away. Faster-if not losing your mind while updating is important, know in
advance that 




Also, more configurable, and what I love is that you can actually use it for
commercial purposes. That's right, Wordpress expressly forbids commercial
use. Writing a blog where you sell is completely forbidden on the free
Wordpress accounts. It's not even possible to embed Amazon links. TypePad
gives you the tools to do it with.

I've been using Wordpress and can no longer deal with the restrictions.
I'm moving to TypePad so I can tweak it, and use it for business. My wife
the Virtual Office Admin who specializes in online marketing, blogs, etc.,
strongly recommends TypePad for her clients, and only uses Wordpress as a
fall-back position if they insist on something free. Even then, some of them
choose Blogger instead.
