Consider your needs and use the simplest solution that gets the job done.
Simple - a CMS with blogging built-in (Drupal, Joomla, ModX, etc)
Simpler - Wordpress that you host yourself
Simplest - a host solution like Wordpress.com or Blogger or many others, most of which will let you run on your own domain for a small fee.
