FREE Blog Resources

Easily Get Your New Blog or Web Space NOW!


Need the answer to the question - "What is a blog?"

Web + Log = Blog

From Wikipedia: Blog

"A blog is a user-generated website where entries are made in journal style and displayed in reverse chronological order."

Or in other words, a blog is your very own website that you can update yourself, like an online diary about any topic you want.

Here's some links to FREE resources where you can get your very own FREE blog, where you can choose the 'look and feel' (templates) and more.

 

HOW-TO GET A FREE BLOG - RESOURCES:

Squidoo - VERY EASY
Not exactly a blog, but you can very easily start your own free update-able web page about almost anything (remodeling - hint, hint). Squidoo has built in money making ads. Easily add images, videos, stories, polls, Amazon products, and lots more.
