This is my first post using the wordpress system. its actrualy really nice. According to there website it should take 5 minutes to setup you blog and well they weren’t lieing from the point where i downloaded all the code edited it and the uploaded it to the server did take about 5 minutes. oddly enough the most time comsuming part of this whole prossess was waiting for the 1000+ files to all upload though they each take less that a secound to upload that still adds up to about 2 minutes. But thats not bad when you take that fact that it takes about 5 minutes to setup a blogger account i would say if you have your own way of hosting your blog then go with word press you get tons more control of your blog and it takes about the same amout of time to set up.
