Choose The Best Blogging Platform
While actually setting up a blog is easy, the process of starting one requires a few decisions that will impact the success of your online venture. For instance, what will be your niche? If you want to make money blogging, how will you monetize your blog? Should you use a free blogging platform or choose to self-host your site?
Although a self-hosted blog built on WordPress.org’s software will offer you maximum flexibility, control, and monetization opportunity, not every blogger is looking to turn their blog into a business and make money online. For hobbyists, a free blog from WordPress.com, Blogger, Tumblr, Wix, Weebly, or even SquareSpace can still provide the basic benefits of blogging.
