    I want a hosted blogging platform - for what I want to do I don't need a domain (I'm thinking of blogspot.com for example), I want one that's just easy to post to, easy to sign up for etc.

    I would prefer it if it has a iPhone app so I can easily post from phone, or post via email...?

    Just want opinion on what platform would suit me best...?

    Ok, I decided on tumblr because I've never used it before, and because I have heard it mentioned on here, and because it has an iPhone app!

    I will prob post review here in case anyone is interested, but so far so good - took me about 45 seconds to create an account set up the blog and make my first post!! ...

    I went with tumblr in the end, it seems ok.

    I know wordpress is better, I use that for some other blogs, but I just wanted quick and simple on this occasion, and I liked the look of the tumblr iPhone app:)

    Thanks.
