Probably the most assanine question I've seen asked on here *chuckles*

But how does one create a blog? Lord knows I could really use one right now.

You can create one on your own website with just CF or PHP or ASP right? You don't need a special software or anything right?

Please don't laugh at me... :rolleyes:

You could create your own blogging system, which would be some work. But there are also many blog packages you can use (MovableType, Drupal, WordPress, etc). Some are free to download, and you can have a blog running in short time. WP is famous for the "5-minute install" - well deserved, in my experience. I use WP to run my site, and it's quite convenient.

I say wordpress. I haven't ever used Movable type or text pattern but people have said that TXP is pretty hard to use but I can't say whether that's true or not 'cause I've never used it ;)

WP's "5 min install" - more like 5 seconds once everything's uploaded :)

www.blogger.com allows you to host one a blog on your own server or you can use them to host your blog. You can even customize the theme if you know html and some css.
