Here are a number of blogging platforms:

Weebly – specifically educational; free.

Edublogger – specifically educational; subscription-based if you want anything more than very basic blogging. Based on the WordPress blogging platform.

Blogger – service connected to Google so it has a vast range of tools available to it.

WordPress – not educationally related; takes a little while to get used to, but you can create a nice and professional-looking blog.

Tumblr – not educationally related; perhaps better for PLN or for a blog which you administrate. Great for sharing items of interest that you find on the internet with great ease. Easy to use.
