After doing some odd 60 pages in Wordpress and doing some playing with Typepad – I am keeping my Typepad account for blogging.
As an end user, both are equally easy. I go into Word, I type up my blog entry, I hit publish, I close my Word document and I get on with my life. Same thing if I want to edit an old post, etc.
The problem is maintenance. I don't have to do anything with Typepad. They do it all for me. Occasionally I have to renew my domain name with someone else. Wordpress still requires me login and do maintenance. Plugins and everything else.
That's too much work. Especially for the average end user.
