Making websites for free with WordPress is as easy as 1, 2, 3.  All you do is go to wordpress.com, complete the easy signup form and click on the activation link in the email that they'll send you.

Within seconds you'll have a blog ready set up. Making websites for free doesn't get easier than this and this is what you get:

Over 75 lovely themes to choose from with a range of different focuses. You can switch between them with one click and each one allows for the customisation of your sidebar with widgets and some let you upload your own header image. If you're a CSS wizz, you can change your CSS code to suit yourself too.
Writing posts couldn't be easier and you needn't worry about losing your work because it's continuously saved. You can include photos and Utube videos too.
When you add tags to your posts they'll be added to the WordPress tag system which will drive traffic to your posts from the WordPress community.
Spam won't be a problem because Akismet will be embedded in your blog and it prevents spammers from leaving comments on your blog.
Wordpress not only enables making websites for free but it provide you with stats on traffic to your blog and where it comes from, the popularity of your posts and which search terms are finding you.
There's a support team at your disposal as well as extensive documentation and a user forum where you can get help
With the numerous and powerful servers at WordPress, you needn't worry about your blog seizing up if you suddenly get loads of visitors of if there's a power outage somewhere.

Making websites for free is all very well but there are a few things that you don't get that you would get if you had your own hosting. Obviously, one is the total control of your site including the ability to edit the code of your theme. Another, which for me is most important, is that you don't get to have all those amazing plugins which add all those little extras to your site.

Personally I prefer to self host WordPress and if you're a member of Wealthy Affiliate you get hosting included in the package. On top of that they have WordPress Express which enables you to build a blog in about one minute.
