    if you decided, than start with Blogger.
    Wordpress is also good, and there are many good blog site, you can find on internet.

    Why Blogger?
    the biggest benefit with blogger is you can affiliate your Google ad sense program with it and earn money.

    I'm using Wordpress with Genesis Framework. There are many free themes available also.

    First, you have to decide if you host your own website which involve fees for hosting and purchasing the domain name.

    If you for free ones, blogger and Wordpress.com are always available. Both are easy to manage and have bunch of themes to choose. Just read their terms specially wordpress.com as they're very strict when it comes to monetization.

    You can use either of the two most popular blogging platform blogger and wordpress. Both are free to create blogs, easy to manage and there's an active community support.

    Blogger is the easiest and the best to customize. As a layman I have tried both the Blogger and the Wordpess. Blogger does not require any technical know how and it can be easily monetized for free. One can export his/her blog to any platform after having personal domain.
