A Few Blog Samples
Perhaps the "go-to" blog as I know it is Blogger. This is probably due to its ease of use and lack of other distracting features. But, the main reason this is a worthwhile option is if your district is a G Suite for Education District, there's very little additional registering for a student to do. They can title a blog, customize its look, and begin working on their post within a matter of minutes since it's all connected to Google. So, if Blogger is unblocked in your district (unlike mine), this is a nice option for students.
WordPress is another option for students to set up a blog. It has a fairly detailed toolbar for students to not only customize the look of their blog, but each individual post. There's also an option for unlimited customization whereas that's an additional charge with other blog services. However, the neatest option available is that this has a mobile app component with it. Since there are a good number of students who are tied to their phones, they have the option to draft a blog as they're lounging around in the evening.
