@blackneuron: Good idea. I've been writing for years now. I was doing a somewhat political blog last year, lost interest after a bit. I realize the passion for writing was there, but the material wasn't what I loved. Well that, and I didn't really want to start a bunch of political arguments with people I barely knew on Facebook, who stumbled across my writings.
I'm currently starting a new gaming focused project. I am building up a few pieces before putting anything out there, but it should be ready soon. While I don't plan on hosting the blog proper here on GiantBomb, I'll definitely re-post some stuff I write on my GiantBomb blog to hit a larger audience.
Good luck though. Whether you're doing it just for fun or if you want to make a career out of it, I hope it goes well for you. Writing can be very rewarding.
@HatKing: Thanks for the words of encouragement. I have always been good at writing code, but just writing in general I have never been good. A writer friend of mine told me the best way to get better is to just write, so I will do just that. I used this post as well to see what the community feedback would be like. So far blogger is looking like the best option with the ties into my Google+ circles.
