I have found WordPress.com very easy to use for the creation of this Stateline Genealogy Club at Beloit Public Library BLOG.
It helps our Stateline area genealogy friends keep up with the Club programs,
additions to the Beloit Public Library Genealogy and Local History Collection,
and a wider knowledge of how to do genealogy well.
There are good tutorials, and practicing has helped me learn some fine points.
It is free (until you use up the initial space.)
I had also tried a gmail www.blogger.com BLOG,
but found it too involved to maintain,
and tied to gmail “circles”, etc.
