Website Woes -

Jesus H. Christ, what does it take to create a website in Yahoo with a blog by Movable Type?????  I have been working at it for days and short of unscrewing my laptop and digging in with my hands--okay, yes, I know that won't work.  But the urge is there.   The problem is that when you go to http://www.byjane.org you get a blog evidently created for me by Yahoo and Movable Type.  I cannot get rid of it.  Nor are the blogs I create in Movable Type showing up. Nothing is being published.  Maybe that's the problem.  HTF do you get this shit published????  And HTF do you get that Y and MT blog to go away?  I've tried appealing to them for help, but I can't get into MT (don't ask, if you're really interested, I'll email you) and my queries to Yahoo have produced a rather pathetic "we are here you to help" letter that sounds similar to the pleas I get for money from the Chief of Totonga and asks for every bit of secret code I have ever been able to create.  So I'm like -- um, thanks all the same; I'll figure this out by myself.  But WTF WTF WTF??????????????????????

You have my sympathy... perhaps something other than Yahoo would be more flexible and user-friendly?
I have no useful suggestions. I've never created a website for precisely this reason - I have no understanding of the process and absolutely no faith that it would not be tampered with.

Hope you get it sorted soon, though.

I've recently started recommending wordpress to blog curious friends ... movable type is just too dang hard to set up! I still use mt, but only because I have someone else to take care of all back-end nitty gritty stuff. Wordpress is so much easier to deal with ...
