    Wordpress.com - only problem is you can't monetize the blog.

    In general, I agree with the suggestions above (wordpress.com and/or blogger.com). But free blogging sites have different rules. More information is needed. What will be the niche? Do you intend to monetize the site and how?

    In my suggestion, Blogger is best. Because easy to use and free of cost.Wordpress will be good but you can't monetize it easily.

    blogger or wordpress.com for free.

    Boosites.com for a single $1.99 fee.

    Or you could buy a domain for a few $$ and get a shared hosting coupon and set up your own wordpress blog for about $40 for the year and have complete control

    I don't know if blogger still allows redirects because I tried 2 weeks ago and couldn't perform a meta redirect. I know this wasn't the question but I just thought someone could shed some light on it.

    Blogger or Wordpress but for the newbie I can suggest Blogger would be easily manageable.

    DEAR MATE,
    Blogger is best to create to free.
    It will suit all.

    In starting stage no one wants to waste their money.

    If you did best to make popular blog in first attempt, blogger will be best place to earn as well.

    Even if you fail in first attempt, there is nothing to loose.

    You can move on with experience

    Blogspot if you don't have money and just starting you easily customize your blog if you go to blogspot. In wordpress, if you don't have money then you can't customize it and monitize it. So I think blogger is the best if you are just starting.

    Wordpress is good but it requires a little bit of experience to make it look good.

    I recommend blogger as well.
