I'm looking into starting a blog, and I've heard really good things about both WordPress and Blogger. This will be my first time doing a blog, and I've heard that Blogger is better for first-time bloggers, but I want to make sure that I know all of my options. I want something that's free, and that won't require me to spend hours trying to figure out how to use it. I also want something that will let me customize the design of my blog. I don't know if either site requires it, but I do know a bit of CSS and HTML, although I'd rather not have to use those! Also, do either of these sites make your blogs completely open to the public? This is something I'll want only family and close friends to see, and I don't want random people stumbling across my blog and reading my thoughts. However, not all of my family/friends have blogs, so I want them to be able to read it without having to sign up and create a blog themselves. If you use either one of these sites (or both), I'd love to know what you like and dislike about the one you use. If you use something else entirely, feel free to tell me about that, too!
