Go with Tumblr.com. Probably one of the best blogging platforms out there 😀

As you have limited use I suggest to go with wordpress.com

Everything is equal. If you are looking for hosting services, look for the cheap rates. If you are looking for free hosting, anyone is as good as the other. I prefer Wordpress though!

Use fatcow.com for hosting (roughly INR 2000 for hosting + domain in the first year). I would suggest wordpress because its highly customizable.

How's their customer support?
Best one is to get a domain from a trusted reseller like GoDaddy or Name.com and get it linked with your wordpress.com account. The_Big_K, what do you say?

Yes, of course. But does WordPress.com give you customization control?

Their own theme selection only. But one thing is good. The security. If I use a self-hosted wordpress account, it gets easily hacked, and I have experienced it too. But this is not the case with the hosted wordpress blog. So considering this being the main and crucial factor, I suggested that. Dude, why I said cruicial is, it made my domain to be blacklisted because of the spam and also the attacker can send spam mails and malware. To avoid all these hassles, it is better. 😀 And also, the free themes like neoease are great! 😀
