Hi Katherine,

I would first get a domain for your blog and then get a hosting account, in your hosting account you can then install wordpress and your blog is up and running, ready to add content.

The reason I say this is because you will own your blog, if you go for a free platform like Blogger, you will never actually own your blog and people have had their blogs disappear, which I am sure you do not want to happen.

I hope this helps, if you need any help with domains or hosting then let me know, If I am not in the forum then PM me

Regards

Rob

Wordpress is enough for doing blogging as it provides lots of themes and plug-ins which are awesome to make beautiful sites as well.

@ Robert Petrie, thanks for your suggestion! I agree with you that a free platform might be unreliable, however since my company's website cannot host a blog, i think my only option is going with a free platform.

however, do you guys think that hosting it on a free platform might give customers a negative feeling?

Wordpress is definitely the way to go. They have a lot of professional templates that you can start out with and their plugins cannot be matched.
Make sure you get your own domain and install Wordpress to ensure you retain that professional look.

For me Wordpress is really awesome, it has thousands of themes and plugins which are really good for doing SEO for any website and it is very easy to use.
