Hi Robbie,

Welcome to the world of blogging! I guess the first steps are to decide why you want to blog, who is your audience and what you are going to write about. Do you want to make money from your blog? Are you just writing for pleasure? That decision may affect the domain name you choose and whether you want to go for paid or free hosting. In either case I would recommend you choose Wordpress as your blogging platform.
