Blogger/Blogspot are Google’s blogging format. It is a very easy format to use and I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to do a personal blog. It is FREE.
With in just a few clicks you can be up and running with their easy template set up.
I set up a new blog and I had my first post up in just 10 minutes. That was even with some custom color changes. The templates are very easy to use, and you do have the option create your own look.
