I’ve finally decided to give MovableType a try to see how it compares to CityDesk. This might be a good alternative solution.
Update: Sample blog now moved up a level, taking over cantoni.org!
The main benefit I’m looking for is the ability to update or post from any location. Right now I can only use CityDesk from home which is limiting my ability to post from work. Also, the blog interfaces might open up some opportunities for PDA-based posting.
