Step 2: Choose Your Blogging Platform
Once you’ve understood what you want to blog about you need to choose the platform at which your blog will be established.
There are several platforms online to choose from (Blogger, Tumblr etc.). But don’t be carried away WordPress is still the best.
All have pros and cons, but WordPress is by far the most popular (we use WordPress for our blog), and for good reason. It’s flexible, functional and has a large community of users with free themes, plugins, and resources.
Why You Should Avoid Creating Your blog on a Free Blogging Platform
It’s not like you can’t create a free blog. You can, but it will be limited in terms of what you can do with it; in fact, you can count professionalism out of it.
These are the major reason you shouldn’t go for free blogging platform:
- You won’t have 100% ownership of your blog
- Unattractive URL
- Difficult to make money
- Can’t be easily customize
- Limited in terms of capacity
- Not user-friendly etc.
It will be wise not to create a free blog, especially when you plan on making money with it. Most times people think they can start from the free platform then migrate to self-host account later.
Doing this could cost you a lot, not only can it cost you your follower it’s also time-consuming and a difficult task. So it’s always better to start the right way.
