Blogs. Let's say I thought about blogging something like, I dunno, being diagnosed with breast cancer. How do I start? Where do I start?

I'm not the best to answer but until others chime in...
You would start by choosing which free blogging program (probably not the right word) you want to use. WordPress and Blogger are the two big ones I can think of off the top of my head. Blogger is a Google program, so its integrated with other Google products.
There are pros and cons to both. I like WordPress.
wordpress.com
blogger.com
When you sign up, there are tutorials, I'm pretty sure.

Fuck Google.

Wordpress ROCKS. It's free software (free as in freedom) with a huge development and support community. You can host a blog at wordpress.com (for free, I think?) or you can intsall the Wordpress software on your own site. Using wordpress.com puts limitations on what you can do with wordpress - you can't modify themes, for example.

I'd recommend starting by hosting at wordpress, and if/when you feel limited by the restrictions, move to your own domain. WP has excellent tools for migrating your content.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I've been missing the community. I'm on Facebook and don't really like it. I miss the forum atmosphere... this one, specifically.

I've got FB burnout + addiction. I miss the community and history of a good message board. :heart:
