Looking for blogger source suggestions. With my sisters help, I will be creating one soon but want to make sure that I can do what I want to do with it. Any suggestions?

Well, blogger itself is good, as is Wordpress.

What do you want to do with it? If you use the free version of wordpress you can't use third-party scripts on it, so no ads or anything like that. You can use the paid version of wordpress for advertising but you have to use an outside host server (some website hosts already have the ability to host it there built in.) If you use blogger you can use google adwords or amazon affiliates really easily, but the stats about visitors isn't reflected back to your website, so it doesn't increase your rankings for your website itself.

Thanks for responding! I guess I did not realize "blogger" was a blog site.

I don't want to sell on it but I do want to post my creations and blog about them and maybe do give a ways. Some what what Bakerella and others do on theirs.

Thanks again for your responses!

It looks like is all you'd need, if that's what you're looking to do. It's pretty easy to use, and they just added a template customization feature so that you can do more individualized designs than you used to be able to.
