does anyone here blog? if so, how do you do it?

what does it cost?

are there any really good, must have, sites/servers (is that the what it's called?)? are there any really bad, avoid at all costs, sites/servers?

i thought BLOGGING might be a fun way to organize my old journals - tossing the pages, but saving the really good stories...

peace

I like the idea of transferring journal to blog.

I have two blogs. For my business blog my techie husband takes care of the back end stuff to keep it looking super presentable. We use a Word Press and Thesis Theme (paid for) with a host (paid for). You can check it out on my profile.

I rarely get to my personal blog, but it took just a few minutes to set up for free on blogger.com and is very easy to use/ intuitive. You can even mark it private if you do not want to share the content while you are transferring. If I were going to use it to transfer journal I would want to make sure I backed up the content in some way or another...

My blogs on wordpress... I blog very sporadicly (I'll go through spurts of blogging lots and then hardly at all for months). I used to blog on blogger but switched a year or so to wordpress - as much as I like most of googles services, I just prefer wordpress - I feel like its a faster site and easier to manuver around, but with more options... I think my blogs in my profile - if not its todoentiempo.wordpress.com

I use blogspot, not because it's that versatile, but rather because there are a lot of blogs in my network that I follow.

I have a blog, mostly just for fun and to let others know what I'm up to. No money involved.
