Well, I used WordPress extensively in the past. I lke it. It's a good platform. It has a lot of features, ones which I never used.
Having more features doesn't necessarily make something 'better'. I chose to use @write_as because 1) I was curious about it, 2) I like its minimalism, and 3) it does what I need it to do.
That doesn't mean it's for everyone or every situation, it's the right choice for what I want to do. For me, Write.as is 'better'.
