Comparing TypePad and WordPress for blogging

JD Lasica details why he moved from TypePad to WordPress

Where development had seemingly largely stopped at TypePad until recently, WordPress was regularly rolling out new versions — and version 2.7 is now the muscle car of its class.

Where TypePad’s users were dependent on the hosting service to roll out new improvements, WordPress opened the door to thousands of useful, inventive plug-ins that would overwhelm any topdown roadmap. Plug-ins have sprung up that give blog operators an amazing array of programming choices.

A engaged community of users creating add-ons is a sure sign of a software product that is giving its users what they want.
