Free site for blogging?

hollyday, Jan 23, 4:37am
Recommendations please... ... ... ... ... definitely an end-user for computers here, I couldnt programme my way out of a paper bag (In fact, I might be lost in there forever).

I am a closet-writer, and I want to start a daily blog, using an idea I have had for a book. Can someone please suggest a site that is available for this? I dont want to run a whole website with graphics, etc, just an easily accessible blogsite... ... ... ... ... my ramblings are probably more than twitterings, and I need it open to public access and easy to update.

Thank you kindly,

Hollyday

You'll regret not doing it properly though if your blog gets popular.

What do you mean by not doing it properly?

Like if it really takes off and you want to customize the theme etc you wont be able to or have things for your "fan" club

Or have your own domain (www.mycrazythoughts.com or whatever, instead of wwe. blogspot.com/randomusernam-
e/).

because people who make a site that the only draw to it is blogging dont know anything about setting up themes for bloggers?

If it takes off then you are stuff with the blogger site using that domain with limited control. If you switch to a new domain, although you can tell visitors to go the new site, you are essentially starting again in the eyes of google/ other search engines.

Most people don't really know what they want from their sites so having full control can save a lot of hassle if you suddenly realise you want something different.
