So you want to start a weblog?  Or blog, for short, for those who’ve already taken the plunge 😉 .  Well for you first-timers, you are best going off to those blogging sites that have everything already setup for you.  Free sites such as WordPress, TypePad, Blogger, LiveJournal, Xanga, MySpace, Facebook, etc., are excellent starting points for blogging newbies.

However, the limitations of those free sites are customization and blog filespace allowed.  Although, most have different templates to change the look of your blog, basically, you are stuck with the 20 or so templates that the millions of other users are utilizing for their blog.  Also, you are limited to how many photos, posts, comments, etc., that you blog site can have.  If you plan to use your blog often, upload many photos, and have frequent visitors, then you are better suited to have a self-hosted blog, which means buying your own web-hosting service and then uploading the blogging software to your site.  In most cases, the web-hosting that you do end up with, will have their own blogging software already installed.

For my site, I’ve purchased web-hosing on Aplus.  They do include their own blogging software, but I prefer to more user-friendly, WordPress.  Installation of WordPress on my site was very simple.  Go here to view the Famous 5-Minute Install.
