After a bit of research (admittedly a rather small bit), I determined that WP seems to be the best fit for what I want to do with this site for the time being.  Updates will (hopefully) follow soon.

This site reflects the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, findings, prides, prejudices, likes and dislikes, and positive and negative qualities of myself and myself alone, and does not reflect the thoughts or opinions of my employer, family, friends, coworkers, community, state, nation, political party, or likely any other individual of sound mind and good reason.

I use GoDaddy for domain registration and bluehost.com for hosting. I have been happy with both of these organizations.
