    Does he actually want to sit and write about Internet Casino Games for the next few years or just play Internet Casino Games? Its not quite like getting a pupy but you still have to ask does he whant one? blogspot or wordpress are both fine and worked for many people.

    You can learn how to use WordPress at home and for free! First download and install a server (WAMP, XAMPP, EasyPHP, etc). Then download and install WordPress. Tell your husband you need a month's worth of posts (i.e. 1/day or more) to cover any dry spells or inconvenient lapses he may have in the future. By the time he does that, you'll know if both of you are up to it.

    if you are just asking for using blog, i'ld like to work with wordpress, and i an using it also. with wordpress installation you can make your blog more attractive with useful WP addons.
    so just go threw wordpress, and if you have problem to install wordpress on your domain, get installation information from wordpress.org

    I think you should choose wordpress to blog because it has nice interface and many good features, you can get many useful plugin and varieties of theme for wordpress.

    I say you use wordpress. Wordpress is AMAZING! Exspeciallly with 2.7 out. You couldn't ask for a better blogging platform. http://wordpress.org/ It all depends on if you have a website and if the server that your website is enabled with PHP or a CGI Bin. I beleive.. Correct me if im wrong? There's people who do use blogger & blogspot. But I think having your own platform where you can fully customize your site is alot better then just having 1 page thats going to be your blog. There is tons of websites that have Wordpress intergrated completely into their website.


    When you decide to choose which blogging platform your going to use and you have any questions about installing it. Make sure you ask.

    Blogger is great but it just is not totally under your control and the blog can dissappear overnight
    Having said that, I have a bunch of blogger blogs that are doing pretty well I just make sure I back up my content

    Wordpress? popular with affiliate marketers. Loads of plug ins for SEO and what not, but hacking sems to be a problem

    Good luck with it. Personally, I'd get a bit bored if all my posts had to relate to "Internet Casino Games".

    There is a lot of information you can write about casino gaming and many different angles you can get into.

    Vrindavan is also right,

    For casino, you use blog on your own domain, so you can have all rights and permission, and you can select or design your own template. in blogspot and WP you have limited templates option. so personal domain will be best option.

    I think Blogger does'nt allow some kind of casino topic, Wordpress would match you but you need to host your own hosting too.

    Go with wordpress, it is much more customizable. There's also a huge selection of both free and premium templates available.
