Yesterday I decided to continue an old pet project of mine. I started a blog to tell all about it on freeblog.hu which is like blogger.com or whatever. This was before I ever heard of Drupal. Now, I am happy that all this happened so -- I left that blog untouched for 1.5 years. Do you think it's safe to live any web application 1.5 years untouced? No. Also, they offer tons of skins, free. Primitive skins, aye, but still.
Drupal is not for these scribble-something-on-the-wall sites. It's able to do it, just does not worth the bothering.

I agree that it's not safe to leave a application, wide open for 1.5 years. But I surely disagree that Drupal isn't suited for a Blogger.com type usage.
Why isn't it worth the bothering ? I think if you had used freeblog.hu for the 1.5 years, you would have a different perspective. Care to give us reasons why it's not worth it ?
What I meant is that for a simple blog it's much simpler to let someone else turn the wheels.
When you have fancier needs, it's first WordPress anyways, it's friendlier for blogging (but IMO inadequate for anything else). And when all these run out, then comes Drupal which is capable of all these, just -- as said -- does not worth the bothering, the learning of the system etc.
