I have made the move from Joomla and hosting websites myself to using Blogger!
It seems to be easier to post a new blog than maintain a bloated piece of software that uses up a ton of resources and webspace. Sure, Joomla is free (not all the plugins are, tho), but so is Blogger. So, why try to maintain the backend of a software package and try to write articles?
I've had years of experience with Wordpress, Drupal, phpNUKE, a few other CMS packages, and Joomla. I felt it was time to put those away and move to an easier solution for blogging.
So enjoy the new site and I'll start writing some more articles and opinions soon.
I also maintain and write for www.radiodjmike.com which is also now hosted here on Blogger.
