You can use services such as Weebly (www.weebly.com) - they have an easy, drag & drop interface to create your own website. It's free, powerful, and professional.
Or, you can use Wordpress and add a 'plug in' for a forum. Sign up for a good hosting such as Dreamhost (my favorite, i have used them for years, and their service is fantastic, cost is around $10/month). Buy a domain name (you can do that with them too, an average .com domain costs around $10/year). They offer a free 'one click install', meaning you can have your wordpress blog installed on your domain name within minutes. Then you choose your template (they have lots of wonderful templates), add your content, then add the plug in for a forum.
By the way, regarding Blogger - i have used them before, but i don't think there is an option for a forum. Plus, Blogger has been known to remove people's content if they are not happy with anything that is being published. I personally love Wordpress for it's simplicity and flexibility. :-)
