TheConnect starting your own blog would not require much technical knowledge. Have a look at this thread for some very helpful information on the topic - How To Set Up Your First Website with WordPress. If you do decide to run your own blog on a hosting account you would find a book such as WordPress for Dummies, very helpful. To make it even easier you could start your own blog on WordPress.com, Blogger.com or TypePad - this would allow you to get started without any technical knowledge at all. You could gain experience on writing blog posts and building traffic and then at a later date, once you have improved your knowledge, you could start your own blog on a paid hosting account. Do you think that one of those approaches could work for you?
