    I've been thinking of starting a training blog for my dogs. Since I work with Carma twice a day and like to record them, I figured it would be a good place to keep them all together.

    So does anyone here use a free blogging site that they like a lot?

    And here's another video of course :p

    I started on Blogger but only because I didn't do any research. I think Wordpress is pretty much the best platform. Not that blogger is crappy or anything, I think it's just that Wordpress is much more versatile.

    Good luck! I loved my blog ..now it's a little abandoned but I've been trying- halfpastwonderful.com

    I use Blogger and love it! I just discovered you can make MOAR PAGES! How cool is that!? So as soon as I have some free time, I'll be adding content via MOAR PAGES! It's super easy to use.

    I started with Blogspot then moved everything to Wordpress. I bought my own domain to host it but I used their own hosting for a little while too. It's a lot more customizable than anything else but for that reason it can be kind of overwhelming to people who might not know their way around design a bit!

    You shouldn't need to use any coding on Blogger. You CAN use coding, but there are also settings where you don't need to use it. I don't use code often on Blogger.

    I use blogger for my blog (see below) and it works great for me, but I don't need/want anything super fancy, either. XD

    I use wordpress and I like it fine. I don't LOOOVVEE it or anyting, I just picked it on the recommendations of others and find it easy to use so I've stuck with it.

    Putting a picture header on it, I mean. I'm dumb and can't figure it out.

    Mine's called "The Eclectic Collie" because I blog about whatever strikes my fancy. Most of the time it's actually Doctor Who (surprise! lol), but also my dogs, tea, random crap, my gecko, my dreams...anything that I feel like writing about or posting a picture of.

    Thanks for all the suggestions again guys.

    I just want a place to put some pictures and videos of training and life with the dogs in general. I like to watch the videos repeatedly to critique myself.

    I started a blog on wordpress. I have to catch up, but so far it seems easy enough to use and I do like it.
