Wordpress ( has two options. You can use their blogging
service, which has a user interface on their site to compose and publish
your blog. You can also download their free software for hosting your own
blog on any third-party hosting site. I've found that the templates can be
tweaked easily enough to incorporate static pages and blog pages into one
site. Rather, I've seen others do that. I will attempt to also do that soon.

Windows Live Writer ( is a software
that's on my personal computer, and I open it much like I would Word or any
other authoring tool to write my content. It has an intuitive interface (in
my opinion) and when I'm done crafting my excellent prose (kidding), I
simply click Publish. In short order (depending on Internet connection
speed), my post is published to my blog and visible to all.

Essentially, I use the two together.
