Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?

I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard
time selecting between BlogEngine/Word press/B2evoluti on and
Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
