Blogging with Movable Type

If you’ve never looked at Movable Type, definitely take a looksie. Written by Six Apart, now owner of Movable Type, Typepad, and LiveJournal. While one of the most annoying installs ever (for the free version), it has practically all of the features that anyone could wish for and definitely is as versatile as the author needs it.
I would suggest installing MT-Blacklist ASAP to moderate/deny blog spammers.
Otherwise, follow this tutorial from Tokyoshoes and have fun!
