Everyone has their own style for writing articles. You can write them however you like, and don't worry when people insult your style. As long as you have good grammar.
I'd also suggest using wordpress to power your site. If you want, they can host it for you for free. Or you can get your own webserver. If you are looking for a good webhost, I'd suggest Cinfu.com they have good prices and never let me down (I have a VPS with them, that runs pretty well). Don't make the mistake many people make and go with the most popular choice, which is GoDaddy. They are stable, but WAY to overpriced.
If you are just starting out though, having a wordpress.com managed site is fine.
