Thinking about starting up a blog for work related stuff. Wondering if anyone can recommend a blog site for a blog newb (yours truly).

I'm thinking of going with Wordpress or Blogger.

Thorts?

I like WordPress.

I can swing you a discount on hosting with us if you want to run your own blog, or you can sign up on WordPress.com - they have a pretty cheap deal (though it's hosted OS).

WordPress.com also lets you host a free blog (without your own domain, iirc). Blogger is the same and I think Tumblr as well.

You can sign up for a free WordPress one to check it out; it will show you almost all the functionality.

For future reference so I can send people your way, what would your hosting rates be for a Wordpress blog?

Including about 2 gb disk space, 10 gb traffic per month, 3 SQL databases.

For a basic cpanel website: http://www.mammoth.net.au/web-hosting - if you're sending a lot of people that just have those specific requirements we could probably do a custom plan that just caters to that.

Good rates!

I wouldn't say a lot of people, just randoms from time to time that ask me about hosting. I'll send them your way from now on.

Blogspot doesn't have any costs, it's a bit scary. I run a sort of online sales site thing through a blogspot page, not making huge money, but it's costing them a truckload of data without any ads enabled, and has been for years.

You can run a few wordpress site on azure. Very very easy to setup, just select the free website option, and wordpress template.

For a domain like bitcion.windowsauzre.net its free. If you want to point a domain like bitcoinbrisbane.com.au at it, it costs.

Octopress hosted on github pages is free and awesome, static content which means practically unhackable, add Disqus for comments.

All the blog names are f*****g taken, it's impossible to find something unique related to the subject you want to blog about.
