When you choose to blog using a hosted blog service, you don’t need to worry about the software technology at all. You can concentrate on the topic for your next blog post, rather than on how to configure a web server. To use hosted blogging software, you log into the editing tool, write a post, click the Publish button, and log out.

Extra bonus: If you choose hosted blog software, you don’t have to worry about web hosting — the software company is providing that service for you!
