Could you tell some details of ....

what kind of website you mean? What should be on it? Why do you want your own website? Things like that might be interesting.

blog would be the best...

Using a wordpress blog is probably the best idea here. You can go to http://wordpress.com/ and get a free blog. It will be something like sasawatc.wordpress.com or whatever you choose for your blog address.

If you want something like yourdomain.com to be more personal, then you need to buy a domain name. They are about $8 US at Domains at Retail ( http://www.domainsatretail.com ). Just remember you do need hosting as well. Domains at retail has hosting for $4.95 / month at the cheapest and you get a one click install of Wordpress.

So your looking at about $70 at a minimum for having the site up and running yourself if you don't choose the wordpress.com route.

You can check out some other hosts who are priced pretty well and I believe offer Wordpress install through their cpanel at http://www.affordablesharedhosting.com. There is some reviews on that site.

Good luck.

blog or iweb

If you're on a mac you could use iweb, too. Otherwise, I agree with the earlier poster of using wordpress. It's the best blogging system with tons of plugins to get it to what you want.

You can get free themes or paid themes too. Some of them make it look so different, most people will not know it's a blog anymore!
