I used it for around 4 years, and had no issues other than the IP being 
tainted for running a mail server, unsurprisingly of course.

I recommend WordPress.

You're going to go to the trouble of migration, might as well move to a 
platform where you have options: WordPress is *everywhere*. You can go 
small, big, self-host, wordpress.org, you name it.

There is the trouble of going through the migration, plus the learning 
curve. But it is unlikely you will have to worry about that again in the 
foreseeable future: not only most competing website platforms will make 
it easier for you to migrate *from* WordPress should there ever be a 
reason to do so, all hosting companies will accommodate WordPress, no 
matter your budget... even NoSupportLinuxHosting provides tools for 
quickly spinning up a WordPress site.

Its interface is not threatening, addons galore, tutorials everywhere.  
You can make what you want out of it. And that's the opinion of a few 
family members' whose websites I moved from Blogger to WordPress, not 
mine. None of them are tech-oriented *at all*, and all of them are 
having a blast.
