William Porter gives TypePad four out of five mice:
TypePad is a full-featured online blogging service run by the folks at Six Apart. Six Apart became famous almost a decade ago for creating Movable Type, one of the first major blogging applications, and one that is still widely used. Movable Type is installed on your own Web server, giving you total control of every aspect of your blogging system. The TypePad application on the other hand runs entirely in your Web browser, and TypePad also hosts your blog for you online. TypePad competes with other paid and free online blogging services such as WordPress, Blogger, and LiveJournal.
I’ll take it. :)
