Blogging help for the blog beginner

When I started blogging I knew nothing about about them, nothing about setting one up and nothing about altering templates or coding, I actually thought I was signing up for a free email account.

As I've learnt more about blogging I have built a rather big list of helpful links, it took a fare amount of time to compile this list, so I thought it might be helpful to the blog beginner if they had a nice starting point with some helpful resources.

I'll probably do this in parts, so first of... Good sources for help,Creating a blog and Getting your blog out there.
