I'm a fan of Wordpress. It's nice software to use, you can get a
hassle-free blog at http://wordpress.com. Importantly, it's open
source, and thus there are import and export functions. So, if you
ever want to move it to another wordpress host, or host it yourself,
you can. That's an unusual ability in this software-as-a-service
