    So I want to put a blog of my thoughts into my page that people can comment on and all that good stuff, much like a myspace blog, but better because it wouldnt be myspace. The only problem is that I don't know how. Please be as specific as possible and use examples, for I am new to this kind of stuff and probably half-retarded on top of that. therefore be as SPECIFIC as possible...please. if you cant be specific, though, i guess any help is still greatly appreciated

    thanks!

    Are you looking to make a blog yourself or just looking for the code? There are lots out there, we recently implemented something with Word Press. They have tons and tons of customizable templates to choose from.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.

    I would still recommend WordPress, and design your own theme.

    Agreed. Use the engine of a pre-done blog, so you don't have to waste time reinventing the wheel. Just make better rims for it

    You can easily make a blog yourself, but it requires a big-*** framework to be developed first with modularity in mind. Now I don't know why that would be on my mind in recent weeks and in the upcoming months...but I agree with the others that a pre-packaged solution is the best for you right now.

    How would I go about using a pre-done engine and make it show up on mine? I appologize for my cluelessness.

    Wordpress is what I use, the download and installation instructions are here. Support section is here.

    It is really easy to set up. There are step by step directions on the WordPress site, here.
