The Top 5 Best Blog Platform Options
WordPress – WordPress is the platform of choice for many bloggers because of it’s ease of use and professional looking design. This website YourBlogContent.com operates on the WordPress platform.
You have 3 options for WordPress, you can have a free site hosted on WordPress.org where you have your website as an extension of their domain name.
You can go for a paid hosting option on WordPress.com where you have much more flexibility and you can have your own custom domain name. The other option is that if you already have a hosting account with any of the main providers you can install WordPress through you cPanel, this is where you manage all the files that you website has.
If you are really serious about blogging then I would go for the paid options because you can really customize your site and works better for business websites, e-commerce stores and review websites.
Blogger.com – Blogger.com is owned by Google. It is a free blogging platform and offers you lots of functionality such as adding images, videos and advertising banners. The one down side to Blogger.com is that the designs are a little bit basic. You really have to work hard to bring your website to life.
It is quite easy to monetize a Blogger blog through Adsense which again is owned by Google. So as long as you have a Google account you can launch you Blogger blog for free and earn a revenue from it.
Really simple to use, you can’t really break it and is a really good place for anyone who is completely new to blogging to dip their toe into the water.
Tumblr.com – Founded in 2007 and recently bought by Yahoo. Tumblr has well over 100 million users and is a great place to share content. You can look at it like it is a place where you can re-blog.
Does not cost anything and one great feature is that you can have your own custom domain name. If you are a newbie to blogging then you may want to check it out, especially if you are artistic.
SquareSpace.com – SquareSpace is a platform where you can build websites, online stores really quickly. With just a few clicks you can set up beautiful looking sites. They offer a free trial for their service and then after that is just a few dollars a month. Great if you are in rush to get you site live.
HubPages.com – HubPages is kind of a micro-blogging site. What you do is set up a HubPage and continually add content to it.
What they want is high quality content being added to the page regularly and by doing that you can benefit from the high traffic that the platform gets. By doing this you should gain a lot of visitors to your content. Design wise it is not the best format but for ease of use it is right up. Great place to start and free to use.
