First of all, I would like to apologize for being off-topic.
As you can see in my signature, I have a Portuguese language blog on
Blogger/Blogspot, but I haven’t been very satisfied with this platform
lately. It has started throwing exceptions in my face when I try to
post something, so I think it’s time to move. Since so many people
here have blogs, I would like to ask for your recommendation of a
better platform/hosting service.
I know there’s been a theory talked about lately that the best thing
to do is to build your own blog and host it, and this is something I
would like to do in the future, but I’m looking for a somewhat quicker
solution right now :). I’d like to use a free hosted service that
supports code syntax highlighting, and is reasonably flexible in terms
of theme and layout customization. Having the ability to import from
Blogger is a plus. I’m leaning a bit towards Wordpress right now, as
it seems to fill most of these criteria, but I’m wondering if there
isn’t some hip new thing somewhere out there :).
Again, sorry for the noise. Please reply privately if you think a
public response would further pollute the list.
