Creating your own blog is incredibly easy and fun -- even if you're a novice with computers. I've listed a couple of the more popular blog maintenance services below.
You can also use Google to search for ["free weblog"] and [weblog "free hosting"] (omit the brackets and keep the quotation marks). But free may not have all the features desired. Many of the services charge only $5.00/month -- a good deal.
You might also visit other blogs on the Internet and see which ones you like -- then go with the service they used.
According to blog search engine and measurement firm Technorati, 23,000 new weblogs are created every day -- or about one every three seconds. Good luck with yours -- and I look forward to linking with you.
