I initially used MT exclusively for my own blog. My partner then became interested in blogging so I added her to my domain and over a year or so have added three other friends who wanted a simple yet powerful way to publish on-line.
Without my offering hosting on my server and the use of MT none of these four would have become involved in blogging. The new structure is simply too expensive for my situation so I will look elsewhere for a tool that allows me to continue to offer blogging to my friends and family for free.
Thanks Mena for taking the time to listen to your customers and users, I continue to wish Movable Type and Six Apart well.
