I'll second that endorsement of WordPress. For my business, I took the route of buying a domain and hosting (cheap), but use a Wordpress theme as the design engine. Took me a couple days to get familiar with it, but it wasn't hard to get going. The biggest challenge of a blog-based thing is keeping it updated so it doesn't look abandoned. Trying this morning to dream up a topic.... One nice thing is most designs work on mobile devices.

You might want to try WordPress.

I think they give you 2gb of free storage.

You create a new post, upload an image, give the post a title, maybe a tag, hit submit and you're done. The whole thing takes less than a minute.

WordPress also lends itself to easier browsing.
