Haven't done it yet but would like to, mainly to help with search placement and bring attention to some of my sites. I have several sites but don't know the best blog site to use. I know there are several that are free and easy to use but suggestions are appreciated.

Also, are their people that will blog for an internet business? When I think of doing it what usually stops me is I don't know what to say and don't really have the time to become a writer. If there are people to do it, how do I find them and how do they charge?

When a business owner starts a blog, he or she generally writes about things related to their business and industry. If you sell things, you could write blog articles highlighting different products each week. Or you can write about why and how you started your business. You can write about industry trends and interesting news. Blogs are a great way to reach out and connect with your customers; you're letting them know you're updating on a regular basis, that the site isn't stagnant, and you can ask them for feedback and they'll feel like you care about them (as long as you're actually listening to the feedback and not ignoring it )

Thanks and yes I know that's what a blog is for. I just don't feel I have the writing skills and I definitely don't have the time to do come up with the text.

If you have something to say and find a little time to write, you might try something like this.

No one will care about your business like you will.
No one will have your voice.

Your writing skills are good enough.

And I am so far behind in blogging on the topics I need to cover.
