Hi moms!

I have been reading through the forum and it is such a great place. I absolutely love it. I need help with blogs. I know some of you have them and I want to learn more.

I am wanting to do a blog because I live far from most of my family and friends and I feel a bit disconnected with them. I want to get them more involved in what's happening over here and do pics and whatnot of the kids. I just need advice on how to get it going. There are so many companies with templates and services that I don't know where to start.

I've seen some of the blogs that other moms have on this forum and I'm wondering if it's best to go through a specific blogging site like Blogger or should I get my own blog with a domain name and get a hosting service for it. There are companies like this that do it all, this one is called 1and1 (there's the link if you are interested), they do domains and other things for websites and have packages. There are other companies that do stuff like this too but is this the best route for me?

there are just so many options and I don't know where to start or how to narrow it down. I'm overwhelmed thinking about how to get it started but I know once I got all that sorted it'll be fine. I love writing letter and journaling so this will be a fun hobby that I really look forward to doing. I need some guidance on how to get there though!

Thanks moms :)

That sounds like a great idea. I don't blog so I'm not up on the pros and cons of the different options.

It depends on if you want to pay for your blog.

I use blogger because it's easy for me and it's free.

Here are my 2 blogs. I don't blog a ton, so I don't feel a need to pay for it.


Family/birth/pregnancy blog

Food blog

A few of my friends use blogspot.

Good luck with yours!

Thanks ladies.

I'm starting to work on my blog and went the paid route and it's been really good learning how this all works. It's been something I wanted to do (website stuff) for a while and this seems like some really good introductory work to the area.

Thanks for your support ladies.
