Are you using the right blogging tool?

I've been using blogger by Google and generally pretty happy with it - No doubt, it allows anyone who wants to blog an easy to learn (and easy to teach) entry point into the blogosphere.

I guest blog over at pknashville2005 and find TypePad to be very tempermental. There is nothing more frustrating than to work on a posting and have it disappear, or worse become a chore with type sizes and formatting. I'm very visual as well and often wonder if there are other blogging tools that have features I'm really need or want - such as graphics, categories, trackbacks, etc.

Any thoughts or feedback? How about WordPress?
