    I use blogspot, Joomla and wordpress for 20 or so blogs. Out of the 3 CMS I find Wordpress is the quickest to set up and learn.

    Also, Google "word press themes" and you will find thousands of them for FREE!

    I also use Blogspot (from Google) and they also offer Picasa as a photo site..

    Follow the link in my signature for an example.

    Another happy Wordpress user here! Though I'll admit I haven't done anything fancy with the blog save to blog, but its worked very well for what I need it to do and its not complex at all once you get used to its interface.

    I use b2evolution for mine, so far without an issue. If you are hosting your own, it's well worth considering.

    I use a self-hosted Wordpress blog (tons of themes & plugins). Tumblr has recently started taking off with the tech crowd...

    People familiar with forums (like this one!) should be able to pick up blogging pretty easily. The way to write a post isn't really that much different, and it is also pretty easy to link pictures from Flickr.

    I'm another Wordpress user with my own domain and hosting. I've found it easy to use, flexible, and has a great support community.
