One of the things I don’t like about TypePad is the way TypePad handles image URLs if you’re having multiple domains or blogs in one account. TypePad is unable to separate one domain from the other when it comes to inserting images. All images are linked to the main domain or the default blog associated with the account, not with the domain mapped to the blog you are inserting the images into. However, there is a workaround.
Why keep only one blog? If you’re serious about blogging you will soon realize that maybe you should keep several blogs, each hosting its own unique topic. One fun blog, one serious blog, and maybe one (password-protected) for family and friends only?
In WordPress that is no problem. Because with WordPress you can have an unlimited number og blogs in one account, each with 3GB space, and what more could you possibly want?
At TypePad, the TypePad “Basic” account at $4.95/mo only allows one blog, TypePad “Plus” at $8.95/mo allows 3, and only starting from TypePad “Pro” at 14.95/mo you can have unlimited blogs. That’s rather expensive, but if you prefer TypePad, maybe it’s worth it.
In conclusion, WordPress is better than TypePad if you want to have many blogs for free.
