I suggest WordPress, and if you want to start out with a simpler version of Wordpress, to get the hang of it, then you can try using their older version of 1.5.2. Of course, they don't really provide support for it, because it IS an older version of Wordpress...

http://wordpress.org/wordpress-1.5.2.zip

Next up on their ladder of releases, is version 2.0:
http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.0.zip

Then of course, the rest follows, up to their latter releases...
http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/

Some helpful guides as well...

Like the others stated above, self-hosting WordPress is the way to go, if you want more user control over your blog. If you don't care about that, then you could try using Blogger first. Or, a free blog on http://wordpress.com. Just sign-up, tinker around with it and etc. However, I think all blogs on wordpress.com, run their latest version of WordPress, which really isn't "simple" to a starter person.

Usually they keep wordpress.com blogs, updated to their "unofficial release" versions of WordPress. Which could be version 2.8.X or what-not. But that's when the top developers are feeling frisky. Good luck either way!

It would be better if your using the wordpress. If your having problems with it, then you can easily ask for guidance because lots of bloggers are using wordpress.

This thread is a little old, but still... if you want an extreme amount of personalization and customization, go with Wordpress. But Blogger is simple and easy to use, and easy to set up.

Check them both out, see which you prefer.

Wordpress. It has possibly the largest community of active users who are always there to help and not to mention developing themes is pretty easy if you have a basic understanding of PHP Loops.

If you are new to blogging and wanna go for free then blogger would be preferable and if you can host your own then simply go for wordpress.Wordpress gives you lots more option and quite user friendly.
