OT: Blogspot.com?
I have noticed that a lot of the posters here have blogs through blogspot. I went and looked at this to sign up and do one of my own, but am totally lost. I am sure it's simple, but I'm feeling like I won't be doing the right things!

Can anyone direct me on this?

I also tried blogspot years ago and wasn't very thrilled with it. Have had a livejournal since 2004 and like how it works...

Now that i'm moving my site to a new server, I installed WordPress in it, and I really like their stuff. I know you can also get one free hosted in their server if you don't have a site of your own.

wordpress.com (for the free ones)
wordpress.org (if you want to install it in your site)

Ditto what Julie said. I started my blog a few weeks ago...not having a tiny clue as to what I was doing and it's now fun! The girls here helped me with most of it. Please let me know if I can help you.
To begin with, you have to pick your blogger template (the way you want your blog to look) and then start installing links and buttons, etc.

I loved LJ. (Ditched it due to...social problems)

But I love blogspot now. Much more customizable. Gives me exactly what I want. But...probably more than what you're looking for at this point.

Blogger can be as customised or 'basic' as you want.

I'm more than happy to help with any blogger questions :D I've been using it for years :D
