My dad has been living on his own for the first time in 50 years, since my mom recently had to go into a memory care facility. When they were together, his cooking repertoire was mostly limited to barbecue. Now he is turning cooking into a hobby and I'm really proud of him. I suggested that he start a blog, "Learning to cook at 77" and he seems interested.
He uses a Mac and is fairly computer-savvy, but I think a simple blog would be best. Which blogging site/software is easiest to use, in your opinion? I don't think he would need the privacy features of LJ or Dreamwidth, but he might need comment-spam management. The cost should be no more than $50/year.
