IM Session: How to start a blog

Chip (12:32 PM): i thought you'd be the best person to ask about starting a blog!
Steve Garfield (12:32 PM): I am
Steve Garfield (12:32 PM): shoot
Chip (12:33 PM): ok
Chip (12:33 PM): where do i start?
Chip (12:33 PM): is it easy to upload images and video?
Steve Garfield (12:33 PM): do you have a hosting service
Chip (12:34 PM): not any more
Steve Garfield (12:34 PM): ok so there are a few options
Steve Garfield (12:34 PM): if you want to try out a blog for free you can go to blogger.com
Steve Garfield (12:35 PM): then you can use a free web app to load images and post them to your blogger blog
Steve Garfield (12:35 PM): flickr.com is a great way to do that
Chip (12:35 PM): cool
Steve Garfield (12:35 PM): then when you want to host video, you'll need to decide where, archive.org is a free place for video
Steve Garfield (12:36 PM): and they are going to be coming out with a new url for video ourmedia.org in the next few months
Steve Garfield (12:36 PM): so that's the free way of testing the waters
Steve Garfield (12:36 PM): other things to consider would be typepad.com
Steve Garfield (12:36 PM): and blogware.com
Steve Garfield (12:36 PM): those cost money and I use both of them too
Chip (12:37 PM): damn, you're good
Steve Garfield (12:37 PM): clear and consice
Chip (12:37 PM): you saved me many hours of surfing
