Advice please??
Hey everyone I want a blogspot to display or show off :rollseyes: my handknitted items. Does anyone know of any sites that you can make your own blog for free. I was thinking of joining blogger.com but some services are free and others are not :thinking: Hmm.. well please get back to me ...someone.

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

You can make a very nice blog for free on blogger! Check out mine and then on the KH blog link you can click on list and get the rest of the KH blogs. There are other sites as well, but this is the only one I know about.

I've been using blogger for a few years now...some people have trouble with it but I never have -- I guess I'm charmed! :D IMO it's really quite simple to set up and maintain. I do use Photobucket for picture hosting though, because when I upload pics through Blogger, a lot of people tell me they can't see them.

I use both Livejournal and Xanga, and am pretty happy with both. You can make a nice site with either free, and have the option of adding to it if you want to pay.

I have two blogs on Blogger/Blogspot, and find that they have many good features for being free. There's a few other things that I would *like* to have, but until I can afford to pay for blog hosting, I will make do. Occasionally I have trouble uploading to Blogspot, but usually an hour or so later everything's okay... so it might be my pooter, and not theirs!

I just joined blogger.com on Friday and I'm really happy with them so far. Seems like everything I want in a blog comes free with them.

Mine is on blogger (same as blogspot) too. User friendly, usually works well (except this weekend when they were changing out some hardware).

See what you think-
