I am thinking of creating a New Blog on some free blog platform for the sake of experimentation and gaining some practical experience in this regards.
First, I want to have the ability to EDIT the Blog Post, any number of times I want to, in the future. So those services which puts restriction on this feature, will not work for me.
Secondly, I need to have the ability to post CODES within my blog posts, just as we can post any programming language samples, codes, scripts etc. inside Experts-Exchange.com, by using this feature -
I need similar feature in the blog.
Thirdly, it should allow me to add proper TAGS to each individual post, so that I can easily search and filter the posts based on tags.
Fourthly, I should be able to post the snapshots / photos of various stock market charts etc. without any complicated process of resizing or changing image formats etc.
Fifthly, the visitors of the blog should have ability to post Proper Detailed Replies to my blog posts and they should also have the ability to add images and Script Codes etc.
Sixth, I should be able to DELETE the complete blog, with all its posts, when the experiment is completed and I have pretty good idea regarding how all this works. At some time in future, I will have my own personal website, hosted on my own web-server and I will create my final blog on that site itself. But all that looks super complicated to me at this point of time, so I just want to start with this experiment on any good blogging platform.
Please suggest me, about the various options that are available out there, which will fulfill my above 6 requirements. And any other suggestions that you might want to give to newbie in the Blogging World.
Please note, I do not need to have any kind of SEO type of stuff, as the blog will be purely for sharing some specific type of Stock Market Related Information with specific group of people. I do not intend to do any kind of marketing of this blog in the future. The target audience is just a small group of people, whom I already know and I will email them the blog link, so that they can check it out and post their comments etc.
