Hello!

I am looking for a good place to host a blog for free or very cheap (I am a poor student!). I wanna keep it open source if possible (or at least linux friendly) Something like blogger (but with better organization), but if possible, something running wordpress. Any good places?

Also some good photo hosting would be great! I wanna be able to upload via ftp but most services require their windows software to be used. I know that f-spot has support for flickr, but is there other services that will let me use something easy to integrate into gnome? I take lots of pics and would like to have a nice place to share them. Thanks in advance for everyones input!

I've been with these folks for years. They've had some problems with email this year but seem to have fixed that since an installation of new servers.

It's all open source - you get a shell account, email address and server space so your site will run whatever you take the time to install and configure.

blogsome.com (http://www.blogsome.com) runs Wordpress but may not provide the flexibility you want. But it is worth checking out.

I have found Multiply by far to be the best to date.
