    That's a weblog. These days, you do this with incredibly
    sophisticated server-side scripts. You might even offer versions of it
    for syndication via RSS, or allow other people to post comments.

    The good news is that you can get all this for free (or very close)
    and you don't need to code anything. The tools to do it are out there
    already, and they're almost mainstream and commonplace.

    The simplest possible approach (for easy setup) would be to sign up to
    a service like www.LiveJournal.com and run a "community". Anyone can
    read this, people who are also registered with LJ can post comments
    too.

    A more complex approach, but still pretty easy, is to get some web
    hosting of your own that permits server scripts. Then install a
    ready-built system like Movable Type or phpBB (or many others).

    There's a convergence going on at present between news sites, content
    mangement, weblogs, email lists and discussion boards. Everything is
    turning into all of them simultaneously, just with different emphasis.
    Don't be afraid of something being "overkill" for what you need - your
    constraint is ease of getting to know how to _use_ it, not how much
    past effort went into _writing_ it.
