I have been looking at starting my first full size blog (aside of the one here), now that I have my computer and internet back. I am looking for any tips that anyone could give me on starting, where is the best place to go through, that would also allow ads, giveaways and etc? I am hoping to get it started along with the new year to start fresh. What were some of the biggest things that helped you when you got started with your first real blog?
I decided to start through Blogger so that is a relief.
