Ron's comment:

My preference for hosting is
where I have had a number of domains hosted
for over 3 years.

While there is a lot to be said for self-hosted blogs and
WordPress in particular, I believe that WordPress
is more complicated than people seem to assume.

The recent innovations with are often
overlooked as is the fact that Google owns
and has a vested interest in indexing its own blogs.
The new now comes with RSS feed
sign up and multiple widgets that are very easy to
use. This means that you can embed links,
images, sign-up forms etc in the right hand column.

I think Squidoo Lensmasters should not overlook
the value of having a blog RSS feed on their lens.
