Get your own hosting. Buy your own domain(s) and install Wordpress (from wordpress.org).

Then you can setup whatever blogs you want, put adsense and affiliate programs on them.

Hi Debbie, I use www.Typepad.com for my blogs and it allows you to use your own domain.

All-in-one packages can be nice... and they can be restrictive.

By using your own hosting, you can have multiple domains and websites. Sometimes the "all-in-one" packages only allow a single site.

Also, many times you can get better programs and products by picking what you want, vs using what you have to use on a "all-in-one" package.

So... investigage before you buy. Make sure you don't tie yourself into something you don't want.

Go buy hosting that has the "fantastico" script installed. That will allow you to install a wordpress blog VERY easily.

You can do pretty much anything with wordpress and it's very easy to learn and get help.

Fantistico is a good package. But there are a few other companies that have one-click-installs for Wordpress and other software.

The big thing is... find out if the host has a quick way to install Wordpress (or some of the other software you want). If they don't, that means you have to do it yourself... and that may be more than you want to get into.

You can use Blogger on your own domain and with most any web host, change your blogger settings to ftp to your website.

Blogger does have some issues with reliability. Just save your posts somehow. Reliable web hosting shouldn't cost more than $4 or $5 a month.

PM me if you need more help.

Thanks for all the advice. The domain name was my biggest issue; I just think it's better for people to remember a simple/catchy domain name rather than having the .blogspot extension.

Thanks once again and if there are any more paid alternatives please keep them coming. I like to spread my projects between various web hosts, and I want to do the same when starting my blogs.

Not that I?m going to have as many blogs as I have websites, but I?m thinking don't put all your eggs in one basket and all that. I never have more than 2 websites with any one web host. I like to experiment as well.

Anyway I?m rambling. Keep the suggestions coming, and many thanks for sharing your time and experience with me so far.

ALike said above, Fantastico and wordpress work like a charm.

Start with that.

Later when you are a problogger, you can consider movabletype.
