I quite fancy the idea of blogging, no idea where to start...

Oh! Glad you posed this question. I would like to know too? Can I also ask can it be kept private like an old fashioned diary?
Which website would be the kindest to a non-geek?

The simplest way is to sign up for an MSN Passport account (if you use MSN Messenger, you already have one of these!). This will allow you to use MSN Spaces, which is free, and you can either make it publically available or just limit it to your friends on your MSN contact list.

Hope this helps!

Still not 100% what MSN messager is but I'll ask a teenager I'm sure they understand. Thank you gavinchapell I might have ago.

MSN Messenger is an instant messaging application. When you're signed in to it, and your friends are signed in, you can send them text messages and they receive them straight away, with a notification.

It's a little bit like email I suppose, but you don't have to wait for the other person to check their email to get your message, as they will have a flashing icon on their screen to say they have a message and they can respond straight away to you.

i use its very easy to set up and get started. there are privacy settings, so you can keep it private if you want.

its very easy to do, and the longer yuo have it and play about the more you find on it
