    I would suggest Wordpress for a blog. It is easy to work with and customize. There are also hundreds of thousands of free design templates you can get, along with many plug-ins and addons for galleries and more...

    WordPress is by far the best choice for most people. It is eay-to-use, updated regularly, there are lots of easily customizable themes and plenty of useful plug-ins. I use wordPress on my blog at:
    and keep it simple. A simple theme with a customized header photo, six plug-ins, including one to optinmize the post titles and one for pinging. I'm real happy with the results and I can change it quickly!

    Another vote goes for Wordpress. Probably the best system for beginners (easy to setup) and experts (many advanced features) Web Hosting - First class web hosting services.
    Boxbilling - Complete billing, invoicing and client management system.

    Wordpress is best blog software. Very easy customization, we can implement our own designs...and has many add-on plugins.

    Most people don't think of Joomla! for blogs, but if you're looking to set up a blog with any extended capabilities, it's a very good choice. Out of the box, just add one of the many comments extensions, and you've got a full-featured blog site. With hundreds of other extensions to handle things from image galleries to shopping carts, it's an excellent base on which to expand your online offerings.

    You must know that wordpress with many plugins enabled is very demanding, I think about hardware resources. This is the case when you have 20k+ visitors daily. I know you are starting now, but you never know how fast your site will grow, so you have this on mind.

    I've always found WordPress to be the best CMS. It's open source and your able to obtain plug-ins for ANYTHING you can think of. Best of luck!
