Another blog you might like is Tabulas, which I use as the home page for my podcast. Besides writing entries you can also create content pages and extensive lists of links. You can even upload audio if you have the payed version, and the site itself is very accessible. Check it out at

I love LJ! I was on diaryland for a while, and there were things I liked about it a whole lot, but one major major concern for me was that on DL, diaryland, you either had all the entries public, or locked so only people who had the login info could read them. On LJ, you can have public, friends-only, filter friends groups, withonly certain friends in each group, or private posts. I love it. I've done a few voice posts on it, but nothing worth putting up anywhere else as an actual podcast, though I might do one like that next month. who knows.

hi. You absolutely can not go wrong with Live Journal.
A journal itself is free, and you get additional features like audio posting if you sign up for a paid account.
The site has several different layouts you can choose from, so if you find a look and feel you like, you can stick to that one. The colors and what the links say for comments can be customized. No 2 Live journals look the same, unless of course you decided you just want to stick with the regular default settings which are certainly usable with all the major screenreaders.
Like I said, you can't go wrong with Live Journal, or lj as we fans like to call it.
