I want to create a site that basically lets me:

  1. Write tutorial articles with nice formatting.
  2. Display flash videos for my viewers.

Any suggestions on a free solution? Something that would allow me to purchase a domain name and upgrade would be a plus.

Wordpress is the way to go. Allows you to migrate to a self-hosted solution very easily. – Eli Gundry Dec 4 '10 at 23:12

You can also purchase a domain and use that in the future, which was another part of your question. There is a page on that describes setting up custom domains on Posterous (and describes it quite well, I should say):
