If it helps, I've never paid

If it helps, I've never paid a single cent to blog. I use Blogger's server for my blog, Buzznet for my pictures, and Haloscan for my comments. All it costs me is my time, which I'd otherwise be spending kibbitzing on message boards anyway. :)

I tried Blogger

After giving it a shot for a few months, I ended up getting very frustrated with the sluggish centralized server. I've also come to be a big believer in owning one's own blog. The Google guys say "Do no evil" but I'm a bit skeptical given various events of late (which I don't need to go into now). Besides, I like getting under the hood and tinkering a bit.

And I really like the community aspect of Drupal. Thus here I am.

Ah, well there's your tradeoff

Understood. But there you are - either blog for free and have a little patience with the server's occasional hiccups, or go over to the dark side of the force and become commercialized. :)

Commercialized???

The sales department has no input on content. (It might work the other way around, too.)
