That's what we did on all of ours. I can also put affiliate ads up as well. So easy to use and keep updated.

You can put ads up on almost any website. It is a pain to create you own site if you have no dreamweaver and photoshop experience. There are plenty of easy free blog templates you can get on wordpress or blogger.

You can put ads up on blogger, it is the easiest route to get started blogging right away and free. Once you feel like you have advanced past this level move on to wordpress.org which is different then wordpress.com. The .com site is more like blogger, while the .org site is what you use if you are paying to host your site.

I would recommend bluehost for hosting and purchasing your domain name, I have been using it this year and like it a lot, no problems. Though it takes time to make money through ads, usually 6 months to a year before you see anything besides 25 cents.
