    Starting a blog

    I finally realized that a Blog has some value. It is a form of web site without costs - Perfect. Any suggestions where to go to start one?

    the blogging sites I know about(free):
    http://www.blogger.com
    http://wordpress.com/ (free as well. I do believe there is a version that you can use to host the blog yourself)

    Thanks. You could also load an RSS feed widget and pull an RSS feed from here too. Constant new content that's reasonably on topic - especially if you use this one http://www.theforumsa.co.za/forums/e...S2&forumids=70
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I started another one www.labourlawandhr.blogspot.com
    My first one I like the layout of the headings compared to where the posts are one after anothe ron blogspots. Can a blog have a heading with drill down menu?
    Guess one cant have everything ones own way and will have to choose which features override which.
    I will try Chatrmaster suggestion later.
    And will try the RSS feed as well. This is quite an interesting learning experience.
    One more question - how to I put my blog address(is taht the term) into my posts. I see many have it and I presume one does not type it in each time?
