Blogging sites - June 24th 2010, 06:45 PM

I wanted to know if it was okay to use blogging sites if I'm careful. Are they safe? I know that nowhere on the Internet is SAFE safe, but is it like as safe as TeenHelp is. I know of some Blog sites and I was just curious as I wanted to start up a blog. I do have a few other questions about them.

Are the privacy settings genuine? Do they really work?

I googled a few and I want to know what you think of them and maybe you can tell me a little about them. Maybe there are better, safer ones out there?

-BlogSpot
-Blogger
-LiveJournal
-AngelFire
-Xanga
-Weblogger

I'm just being cautious....the Internet is a very scary place if you don't know what you are doing...that I know.

Is it easy to use? I also need something that is really easy to use.
And I need something where I don't have to install or pay anything.

I use tumblr and livejournal, both of which I find reliable. Livejournal's privacy settings are good, and it's fairly easy to use, and is free (though you can pay for an upgrade).

Wordpress is free, you don't need to install anything, and it's superly easy to use. I love it.

Wordpress requires you to have a site (which is not free) but there are many sites which provide free Wordpress blogs (most notably Wordpress.com).

Blogger is the most popular, and I quite like it.

The difference is mainly the layout: Blogger is usually more compact, while Wordpress feels wider and more spaced out. Technically you can design a layout for either to look however you want but it takes a lot of time and creative knowledge (coincidently it's my job for the next month ).

Also keep in mind, your blog will most likely show up in Google searches, where as the posts themselves may not. If you want your blog to be absolutely hidden, you may want to use an alternative username/ or anything that wouldn't be easily recognized.

Oh I didn't think about that. Thanks for letting me know. I've decided that maybe a blog would not be a great idea for me right now. I'll just use my journal and the TH blogs.
