We strongly suggest a WordPress blog because it is FREE, EASY, and very FLEXIBLY. Posts can include photos, video, and audio in addition to the text. Appearance can easily be customized using the free appearance themes. Widgets, sidebars, plugins, and statistics let you do almost anything and see what is working.
This site includes directions for starting a blog on WordPress and our suggestion to use rye6060 in your blog name.
