    Default Where is your horse blog?

    I'd like to start a blog about our journey towards owning our own farm and I'd like to know which website you find is the best...

    Blogspot and Wordpress are the most commonly used basic sites, I believe.

    Mine is on Blogger but I have been locked out of it for almost 3 days now.

    If you sign up for a blog - try to hunt around and make sure there is some sort of verification/user password recovery system. IMHO - Blogger's stinks and they have had technical problems for about a month.

    Mine's on Blogger. I couldn't get to my dashboard to put up a new post one evening last week, but otherwise I haven't had any problems with it. I find it easy to include pics (stored on Picasa by Blogger) and video (hosted on youtube). I just started with the videos in the last couple of weeks.

    Wordpress occasionally I have some frustrating formatting issues that no matter how many times I fix and save, it doesn't work right, but 99% of the time it's great, and very user friendly.

    I like Blogspot... Haven't had any issues with it (other than when I accidentally tweaked the cookie settings on Chrome) and I already use a billion other Google services so it's easy to get them all to "talk" to each other.

    Just wanted to revist this thread - Blogger seems to have worked out a kink - they remember who I am!

    This is my first snafu with them but it couldn't have come at a worse time...typical, right? Oh well, crisis is averted.

    Default Another Blogger

    Mine's at Blogger.

    I only had one problem once -- When they went off line for maintenance, they lost my most recent post and I had to redo it. I create all mine in Word, then paste them into the blog, though, so not a big deal.

    It's easy to use and gives good flexibility on copy, pictures, links, etc.
