question...

...for anyone who maintains their own blog-like site and uses a client other than blogger:

if i wanted to maintain two blogs, one similar to this one, and one where i only publish items tagged with "science", would that be easy to do? it seems like it should be easy to do, but blogger won't let me. it also won't let me hide posts "below the fold", or at least without a cheap hack which i was unable to figure out... the hosting and the software is free which i do love, but i would like to have better functionality, as well as having two blogs, one of which simply displayed posts from the other site with specific tags.

any suggestions on what i can do? what clients are best, what web hosting companies don't suck? i *suck* at HTML... or at least i don't have 5 hours to spend plodding through CSS and XML.

what do you mean by "below the fold", like a "read more" line?

Exactly. Say if I write a post on something esoteric like membrane biophysics, and it's like 6000 words long. i want to be able to hide the "meat" of the post behind a "more" line, so it doesn't take up 6 screens of blog post space.

wordpress probably has a plugin for that, because wordpress has a plugin for EVERYTHING. i would prove it but i'm supposed to be getting ready for work. i'll get back to you.
