    hello… will actually let you host the blog on your site and you can do whatever you want with it there (or on their server, too – just edit the templates, although there you still will have the bar across the top)…if you host it on your site, you just need to set up an ftp account on your box and put it in the settings on and they will ftp the blog content to your site whenever you tell them too (like when you post)…just make sure that account has very limited access to the blog dir only.

    alternately, there’s a tool like word press – mysql and php and free for download:

    I really need something where it is very easy for someone to just log in, write their blog, easily add a picture, and then publish it to the website. The problem with is to have it look like your website and have pictures in your blog you have to deal with a lot of html code (i.e. referencing a photo on your server). I am looking for a program that makes it simple for someone to sign in, write, add a photo and post. If i need to purchase a program to make this happen that is fine. Any help you guys could give me on this would be great.

    pretty much every blog product i’ve seen out there works under the model that you can fully customize it to look like your site, however, to do this you need to know a bit of html to customize the templates… :-/

    if you want to hire a contractor to write you one that is completely customized to your site, it can be done. if you would like to contact me regarding my rates, you can do so by getting my email address here:
