Yes it is definitely easy, so easy in fact that I just started a blogger account for my mom. The thing is that she is over 70 and not particularly computer savvy. She said that she had things to say about the world, I told her that she could blog, that I could set her up in 5 minutes.
And we did so I hope she's gonna remember the easy steps to sign in, create a post and publish. I gave her a homework to modify the 3 posts I already entered on her site, so pay her a visit and leave your comments.
