i've used typepad for two years. two years. it's a service i pay for, and even pay a bit more for just so i can customize the way my page looks. the first year was great, but lately typepad goes in and out all the time, moblogging doesn't work, and the spam is unbearable at times. blogger is free, so even if it goes in and out, i'm not paying for it. that sounds perfectly reasonable to me.
typepad can kiss my ass.
