What is the most effective way to create an email list (for use by diverse senders with different email domains) and an easily accessed blog for postings by multiple users?

I have been charged with two tasks. Users cover gamut of ages and abilities; think extended family, reunion, neighborhood association.
1. I have been asked to create an email list that I can share with a defined list of users (all on the list) who have different email domains (e.g., some Gmail, some work addresses, etc.). They do not seem to want to reply to prior messages, or to cut and paste the addressees from prior messages. I don't think they are worried about limiting sending permissions. I have done this on a single domain (e.g., at work), but not sure that I know how to generate one that can be used by everyone everywhere, and the worst possible outcome is creating one that looks like it works for me and getting a flood of emails saying it doesn't work for others.
2. I have also been asked to create a blog site for *very* easy access and use by the same group. Probably does not need to last for more than six months; free is double plus good. Would prefer the ability to create a private spot, or at least one that was not easily discovered through searches; probably stuck with posting under common ID and password, since generating unique IDs will probably lead to heartburn.
