A reader named Baron asked me by email "what's the best way to start a blog?" Here's a good post about the mechanics, from a user of Movable Type, and i'm sure you can find plenty more with Google. I really like Radio Userland software and for me the $40 was well worth it, but other software is also popular and capable from what i read.

From my own perspective (and i'm still new enough at this to be learning), the key is to have something worth saying! And that comes from having your own perspective on things. A blog that's nothing more than links to other stuff with one or two line comments gets old. For me, the outlet of blogging helps me think about things more deeply than i otherwise might. In that respect i'm probably the major beneficiary of what i write, though i hope others get something out of it too.
