    So,

    I have been wanting to start a blog for a long time. But I don't have any clue where to start.

    There are literally hundreds of different sites, but they all charge a fee.

    It is hard to find reliable information amongst all the google-mercials.

    Has anyone tried making a blog before?

    AFAIK, you can't start a tapatalk only blog. Create a website first, then make it compatible with Tapatalk.

    You've been getting some practice in on this forums Off Topic area since joining so you should do fine once you find your source.

    If I were to start a blog today, this is how I'd do it
    1) Find a blog template & edit it. Search for "free css blog templates" to get started
    2) Once I have that ready then I'd buy a domain & hosting. That can be done through places like Hostgator
    3) Put blog on the web

    That's a forum not a blog though. Hosting and domain still need to be purchased too.

    My clients use these 3 for blogging.
    WordPress
    Drupal
    Joomla

    We should get a pre-login check. Had coffee? No, sorry this site is unavailable.

    I know it is not but it sounds so much more complicated than what it really is. One of the bonuses of a learning disorder. Mole hills look like mountains.

    Is there sarcasm in this or no? I always wonder if I post too much.
