When starting your own blog, the most important decision you have to make is which platform is the best one for your blog. In the beginning, maybe you should consider platforms that are intuitive, free and easy to use. Here are 3 blog platforms that should be a perfect fit for starters:
We’re mentioning this platform first for a reason. Why? Because WordPress is hands down the most popular platform, used by over one quarter of bloggers worldwide. There’s a difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, and it’s definitely something you should learn first. You should use WordPress.com if you need a free and quality platform, but it’s hosted by their server. With WordPress.org, you’ll be able to have your own web hosting, but you must pay for it. This is a good choice if you own a serious business, company or e-commerce.
WordPress will offer you plenty of advantages. Although you’re using the same platform as well as many other bloggers, you can customize almost every single detail. You can find big number of themes for WordPress blogs, customize pictures and colors. You can also use all kinds of plugins available (and they are free).
We all use Tumblr for personal purposes, right? But you’ve probably never thought that Tumblr can be used as a platform for your blog. It’s amazing if your idea of blogging looks like this: short-form texts, lots of pictures, videos and quoting. This platform is also free, you don’t have to pay anything in order to use it and your blog will be hosted by Tumblr.
One of the most amazing things about Tumblr is the possibility of design customization – if you take your time, you can create totally authentic design of your blog. Another thing is that Tumblr is a blog platform but it has some similarities to Social networks, which makes it interactive and friendly. It’s really easy to use and it’s appropriate if you want to own a creative and colourful blog.
Do you remember the time when blogging was just a hobby for people around the world? Well, most of the people back then used Blogger in order to write their online diaries. Like WordPress and Tumblr, Blogger is free to use. All you have to do is to login on your Google account.
The difference between Blogger and other platforms is in innovations – Blogger is an old-school platform and that’s the reason why people still love it. Easy to use, with less customization options than other platforms. It’s perfect for everybody who love minimalistic, old-school style.
