To Blogger or not Blogger?

With the renewal of the site I've been thinking about the way it's set up and published. One thing I don't like is the fact that the Blogger tool I'm publishing through has it's own way of maintaining the front page. I can either set it to 30 days or 30 posts. What that means though, is that old posts don't get archived and removed from the main page until new ones take it's place. Case in point: if you don't blog for a while (me, lately) then start blogging again (me, now) you'll end up with posts on your front page from a year ago. And that's what's happening right now. Ugh. There are posts there from last summer, and there's no apparent way for me to get rid of them, unless I replace them with new posts which fill up the page and force the older ones off.

So, for now, I'm continuing down the blogger path, but may switch to another method if this stays a problem. The layout would stay the same, but the ability for readers to add comments would be gone. I'm not sure that's a problem since there's not much commenting anyway.

Stay tuned.
