Best site to start blog on?

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend me a site? I plan on posting a lot of horse stuff including pictures, reviews, tips and other written posts. I also plan on posting some other random stuff I like, mainly posts. What would be a good site for me to use?

I'm interested in starting up a blog as well, not for horse related stuff though for my other passion :)

Google has a site called Blogger

There are many free blog building sites out there, just do an internet search for Free Blogging

I did a search but im so indecisive, I was hoping someone of here has a blog and can help. I'll check out blogger though.

I'd consider Tumblr. There is a pretty large equestrian community on there, and you can make multiple blogs.

A ton of people are on Tumblr. For the life of me I cannot figure that website out. It confuses me to no end. I do have a blog on Blogger to keep track of Zeus's progress, so it's more for me than anything else. It's super easy, but the mobile app doesn't work for some reason. Let us know when your blog is live! I'll check it out

Not necessarily! :) I have a text-based tumblr [there's a link in my signature, if you want to see what it looks like] and Tumblr does pretty well with that. You do want to chose a multi-purpose theme [some themes are picture/text exclusive] but there re tons of those to chose from.

I thought tumblr was confusing at first too! But, after 6 months, I think I understand it ok. The key is tags though - I didn't know about them for the first forever and wondered why no one was interested in my blog.

I use Wordpress. Very easy to set up. I wanted to put one on here, but I'd have less control of my content here than on a blog hosted elsewhere.
