I host mine on my own server, but I've got experience with GoDaddy and would recommend them.

I'd also recommend to AVOID a company called DoorHost. They were great when I signed up with them but their service dropped to crap by the time I left and I had tons of problems with them afterwards.

How advanced are you looking to get? If you're happy with just a basic one for keeping a journal for friends and family to look at then you might be fine with something like Yahoo!'s 360░, or maybe a MySpace. If you want a little more freedom, but still want a free hosted service, and that has more freedom to post whatever you like, as well as allowing advertising then you might like Blogspot via Google. I have used both, and am having fun with the Blogspot service now.

I assume the next level would be to start your own website, but I haven't quite gotten to that point myself yet, so I can't really help you out there.

Just for reference:
My Yahoo! 360░ blog: http://blog.360.yahoo.com/xlsport
then there's the newer Blogspot one: http://fatduc.blogspot.com/

You really can't beat this guy. http://www.bubweb.com/

He's a regular over at www.thebrewingnetwork.com and many of the folks over there use him for hosting blogs and websites. Bub is a bit wierd, but he knows brewing and is quite helpful with folks just getting started with a website or blog.
