Many of my friends have blogs. How can I start one? What software do I need? Is there a service that offers free blogging services?
You can get a free blog at http://blogger.com or http://wordpress.com
Based on my preferences, I'd reccommend the latter. All the best :)
You can try google search and only write Free blogs and you can get many sites from which you can create a free blog for you.
For online journals go to www.livejournal.com or www.greatestjournal.com
but greatest journal is better!
