TypePad is yet another option and HubPages and Blogit are worth a look too.
According to Wikipedia, blog is a blended phrase made up of the word WEB and the word LOG. Blogs are typically created and run by individuals who add new posts on a frequent basis. Posts consist of general commentary, descriptions of events, graphics, videos (known as VLOGS) and almost anything else you could imagine. So, while one blogger might prefer to communicate with visitors using inforgraphics, photos, or a video embedded in each blog post – another might use more content and links to other blogs (i.e. HybridSUV.com). Both methods can be equally as effective.
Wikipedia adds that a large number of blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to add comments and communicate with each other via high tech widgets. This interaction is what distinguishes blogs from most other websites.
