I have been deciding for a while to build my new home to get rid of the http://weblogs.asp.net/TanzimSaqib blog that I had. The major motivations for moving away from weblogs.asp.net was the annoying advertisements and the inflexibility of the blogging platform as far as the permissions given to a normal user. With my new blog, I have full control over as to what appears and what not as well as a lot more space to utilize: http://TanzimSaqib.com/blog.
