    Blogger is the best i think, but wordpress is also very good. After you getting expert blogging with self hosting is the best :)

    I don't think your question requires an "expert", but rather a "SEARCH".

    Depends on your goal. You can start practicing on Blogger if you don't want to buy a domain and hosting. But if you have the money, a domain and hosting is very important since you can take control of your blog. You are not governed by Google.

    invest in a domain and setup a blog. Blogger can kill your blog anytime but if you have your own blog the chances of that getting killed is really less moreover you'll get motivated when you invest some money to make it back

    Yes agreed, if it's a legit blog grab a domain and use Wordpress on your own hosting so you have full control over it. It's far more professional than running on free subdomains.

    If it's just splogs, then yeah grab free Wordpress, Blogger or anywhere else you can toss them up.
