I think the style of the blog depend on the company's style. According to it, you can find what boards should you set and what content should you fill to this board.

Default Blogging applications that allow ads?

I'm interested in launching my first blog, but am having difficulty deciding which application to use. I want one of the free, easty-to-use services such as WordPress.com where they do the hosting. But Wordpress.com says they don't allow the blog owner to sell advertising on the site. I don't like that restriction, as I have some specific advertisers in mind. Is there another self-hosting blog application, like Blogger or Typepad, for example, which I could use that doesn't have that restriction?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Lisa is correct, I suggest self hosting as well, plus wordpress.com does not allow commercial blogs for the sole purpose of promoting a business. Its somewhere in the fine print.

Using free tools (like free blog service) is good as starting,..but you must be careful. Sometime or maybe often the free blog admin delete our blog without any warning or notification before and we hard to find out why our blog is deleted..

Using a paid service with the cheap one is better than the free one. It takes 9 dollar for domain and about 15 dollar for hosting per year. A lot of benefit using a paid service.....mostly you can control the blog as you like..

I used Blogspot, and good luck so far.
It made it into search results quickly.
But I purchased a URL for it from Google, and linked and submitted it all over.
I even put an RSS feed on it!
My first try at Blogging, kinda fun.
