Blogging software?
Anyone familiar with MoveableType or other blogging/website software?

I'm thinking about adding to me website and, hopefully, making it FAR EASIER to update my galleries. I know nothing about the field. I dislike WordPress because I can't use their stuff and host at m,y current place, DreamHost.com, so that won't work. So something standalone is ideal.

Does WordPress not work because you can't install a database on your server? That's the one I know the most about.

I've done a few WordPress customizations for various clients. Let me know if you need any help, I'm getting pretty good at it.

um, wordpress is a one-click install through the dreamhost admin panel.

I have access to it for free via DreamHost?

yeah, or you could install it for free anywhere you want. Dreamhost just happens to make it easy.

go to panel.dreamhost.com and login, go to "Goodies" "One click install" "advanced"

first one on the list is wordpress. it uses your own database setup from dreamhost.

it is also available in the "easy" section but there isn't the same customization there.
