# Mathematical Blogging

Hey. So I have decided that I want to try to produce a math blog. The blog would essencially just consist of interesting problems and proofs, as well as expository notes on stuff that I'm reading (the symmetric group and it's reprepresentation theory). However, I have found no useful information online as to how to go about producing such a blog. I don't know of any websites that host such things that are: 1. Free ; 2. Not completly saturated with advertisments; 3. LaTeX suppporting. ANy advice, or links to such advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

-chris

Hi Chris,

I think that Wordpress would be your best bet; it's free (sign up for an account here), and they have LaTeX support (although their LaTeX tags are a little odd). And from what I know, wordpress really isn't saturated with ads.

I hope this helps!

Since MathJax works on Blogger, Blogger is also a viable platform (as is any other that allows you to embed some javascript in the page template - or whatever they choose to call the thing). I have a blog post on this here, not wonderful but shows how its done, you can also find the same information on MathJax site.

My experience with WordPress is that the LaTeX can be tempremental.

You can also use QuickLaTeX here. If you can paste images into your blog post, you can post $\LaTeX$. Here's an example using QuickLaTeX:
