Once you know what you are going to write about, you are pretty much ready to get started blogging. The next step is to decide where and those new to blogging usually start with some of the better known free blog networks available such as wordpress.com, blogger.com, or livejournal.com. These are some of the better known free networks, and for the most part, they are fairly user-friendly. Each is a little different when it comes to templates (how the finished blog looks) and interface (how you operate the software). Start by going to some of the free networks and looking at other blogs to see how you like the templates as well as the general feel for getting around the network. If one seems easier to use than another, then you might want to try starting a blog with that one first. Most of the free blog places on the web try to be user-friendly, but it can be very subjective as to what seems easy to you versus another person. If you like one over another, then this might be a good place to try setting up your first blog.
