As much as I enjoyed Wordpress, there was something about it unsettling. I still think its a great engine for a lot of people, just not me.
I've found comfort in Squarespace.
To me it seems like a much cleaner UI. It does have a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it I am finding myself really enjoying it!
Looking forward to some great content on the blog though...a follow up series on the DirectAccess and maybe some posts for Hyper-V with Windows Server 2008 R2.
