It depends on what and why you want to blog really.

I think Blogger is a great free platform, it's easy to use and quite flexible in regards to design but if you wish to monetise and take it seriously then I recommend hosting your own - Blogger can and do remove content or close sites because they want to (I've had it happen to friends).

I personally host and use a Wordpress plug in, I have a lot more freedom that way.

I did a post about it here: www.chammyirl.co.uk/money-makingsaving/starting-a-blog/

Hope that helps.

I created my own blog using a ready made and easily customizable WordPress template ( www.templatemonster.com/blog-wordpress-themes/ ). I like the way it looks and functions. I write about walks I've done, and include some cute photos. My blog has become quite popular now!
