Find a host: The Web is full of services to help you get set up, says Brad Hill, author of Blogging for Dummies. "Blogger.com is free and simple to use," he suggests. Other free starting points include Yahoo! 360 (360. yahoo.com) and MSN Spaces (spaces.msn.com). Choose a name: Give your site a simple name that represents what it's about. "Search engines need to recognize a connection between your blog's title and its content," says Hill. Beat blogger's block: At a loss for words? Don't force it. "New bloggers often stare at the screen with a blank mind," says Hill. Just be yourself.
