Can I start a Wizard101 blog too?

Have a question here from Destiny:
username=Destiny StormStone again
Question=hi again! my mom said that i might
be able to start a blog on w101 i wuz
wondering if you had to get
premission from kingsile or
something to start one

Hi Destiny! All you have to do to start your blogspot blog is click here. And if you don't like the way any blogspot blogs look, click here for wordpress. And you have even more options than those, but those are the two main "free" blog sites.

It's also important to note that you can purchase a blog at Wizard101 Central for 200 forum gold. The benefit to having a Wizard101 Central blog is that you're in a moderated environment and a fairly active one at that. You'll be assured a few views on your blog for every post you make, and it tells you right there how many views you're getting. They've done a lot of the leg work for you.

Now, you ask about needing Kingsisle's permission. You don't need their permission if all you want to do is blog, but if you want to get on Kingsisle's official blogroll listed here, then you've got to follow their rules and get their blessing. It's at the bottom of the page, but I'm going to quote them here for you:
We are always looking for Wizard101 fansites and blogs. It is important that your site mainly contain content about Wizard101. Your site needs to be updated weekly at a minimum. Your site cannot contain content or links to content that violate the Wizard101 Terms of Use. Fansites owners must be over the age of 18, or have written permission from their parent or guardian.

Fansites listed must provide a valid contact email to us and in return will receive updates news via email.

Think your completed site should be part of our program? Email your information to Inclusion of your fansite on our list is entirely at our discretion.

It sounds to me like your mom is already on board with you making a blog, so you're probably half way there.

Good luck on your blog!

Happy Dueling!

My mom says I can do a fansite, her friend is going to show me how.
