I just completed a blog on MSN Spaces in less than 30 mins. with only 3 phone call interruptions. It is really boomer friendly. Go to spaces.msn.com and sign up for an email identity. I was able to then create a space, customize it, upload pictures and make a blog entry.
The blog you create will be hosted on msn’s site. Thus, you will have the .spaces.live.com just as you would if you did wordpress.com’s or blogger’s platform. If they host it you will then have to use their stuff as part of your blog name.
This blog platform will allow you up to 8mgs of space for pictures. Plus you can upload flash videos and photos in your blog post.
The name of my new blog is creativeideasforyou.spaces.live.com. So give it a try. I will post more when I get other insights as I use it.
PS You can create a list of links to other sites if you pick the list feature on your space.
