I have no idea how to get started with blogging except that you'll need your own website I would imagine.  Other than that, just play it by ear.  Perez Hilton started out as a blogger - maybe check out his site and see what he does?  
I also do not have a degree in writing, but started writing a book.  I've always wanted to be a journalist.  
Good luck,
Janet

Google "how to blog" and you will find out everything you need to know - and maybe more.
Good luck,

I have a blog that I've neglected, but it's really easy.  All you have to do is find a website like livejournal or blogspot. (I have used both) . Write up whatever you want to get published, then you can post it.  Both livejournal and blogspot have settings where you can write somethign and make it public or private.

As far as designing it, you can choose from some automatic templates or find some on the net.  There are guides to help you figure things out.  I managed to put a background image for my blogspot blog.  Whenever you alter the html code, it helps to check in different web browsers to see how it looks.  Sometimes something can look good in ie, but look really bad in another browser.


I used to use talentdatabase for showing off my art, but they seem to have went under....kind of a shame...I think I will have to use my blog for showing off the stuff that I formerly had on that website.  thanks for the reminder for me to upload something for Memorial Day (a new-ish picture of one of my characters.)
