I'd like to open my own blog on my website findreality.com, it'd be just random stuff like most blogs, but I'm essentually a graphic designer with basic webdesign knowledge, and I know nothing about php. I'd like some reccomendations of software or blog services which could help with my site? The blog I look at most is http://www.enorgis.com/ so anything which would come out kinda like this would be cool.

P.S. I've started with revamping my old logo (attached), and my new one is in my sig, how'd ya like it?

Logo there is a bit of an eyesore. As for blog recommendations:

http://www.cafelog.com for b2
http://www.wordpress.org for Wordpress, which afaik is a b2 edit.

Used em both, and they look cool.

You can make a blog script look like anything you want. My site is running Wordpress (shameless plug, sorry http://www.johto.co.uk/ ) and you can get a good range of "skins" (although they are really just css edits) from: http://wiki.wordpres...tyleCompetition

Tried WP, didn't like it very much. The UI seems too clunky and it just didn't have the features i wanted.

MT definitely. I am providing free MT (2.662 or 3.0) blogs for anyone who wants a blog without the hassle of setting it up. PM me if you'd be interested.

So blogging is a way to post your text on a web page without actually coding your own HTML, is that about right? You just send in an email or post in a text box like you do to enter your post on Neowin forums and it puts it up on your web page so other people can read it?

Yep - also, in WP there are other features that allow people who register to comment on your comments, calendar, easy to use link system. I think, just give it a try, blogging doesnt appeal to everyone.

Ive coded my own sites, ripped off other peoples and used prepackaged software forums / portals - to tell you the truth Im just a bit tired of that, and a blog script is about all I can cope with.

They are good, just pick one and give it a shot :yes:
