Cheap or Free


If your Old Mate loves expressing their thoughts and feelings, why not encourage them to start their own blog?

History, comedy, current affairs, arts, sports, fiction... The great thing about a blog is that it can literally be about any topic. Plus, there are more free blogging sites on the web than you can poke a stick at - so it's super easy to get started.

The act of blogging is mentally stimulating, and building an online community is affirming.

If diving into an ongoing blog is a big step, then check out some of our other writing activities: Write an Article, or Write Letters.


  • The Guardian has compiled a list of 50 of the most popular blogs as inspiration.
  • If you're wondering which blog platform is best to get started on, well, there are heaps. But we'd recommend a free account at Medium. It's a really easy-to-use (and beautiful) site where your Old mate can write until their heart's content.
  • If computer literacy is a barrier for your Old Mate to starting a blog, then check out our Digital Literacy activity.
