I host my blogs on my own websites, but I use Blogger.com to manage the posts. Blogger is simplistic, but it works. I would like all the features of WordPress, et al, but blogger is simple and painless.
I work for the County Government (I won’t say which). They just put in blocking software that keeps me out of all of my email accounts and sites such as Amazon and eBay. They blocked blogger.com. I do most of my blogging at night, but this blog often has stuff that I think of during the day and post when I get a free moment.
I think my internet output will be severely diminished now that my internet input has been blocked for most everything.
At IBM the attitude was that everything that you did on the internet added to your knowledge base and thereby added to the company. They encouraged surfing.
