I wouldn't recommend Linode to you for this, no.

Linode is good for situations where you'd love to have your own complete
server that you can do anything with.  e-mail, apache, openvpn, etc.
In other words if you'd be comfortable hosting your blog on your own
personal computer, then you'd be comfortable on Linode.  You have to do
everything from software installtion to setup to maintenance.  I
maintain my linode VPS just like I maintain any server.  regular
security updates, monitor for intrusions, etc.
