If you are wanting to start a blog, then before you get started, figure out why you are wanting to start a blog. If you are just wanting to share your thoughts online and have a few people read it, then a free blogging platform is just fine. If you are wanting to make money, then the free ones might not let you monetize your content. You can also add a blogging platform to your already established website if you have the right capabilities.
- Choosing a blogging platform is an important decision. And the one you choose depends on what you hope to do with your new blog and how much control you want to have.
- If you want to start a personal blog to share your thoughts and experiences, you’re completely fine going with a free blogging platform, like Medium or Blogger.
- If you want to add a blog to a website you already have, I highly recommend looking into your website platform’s blogging capabilities.
“But with so many options to choose from, picking the best blogging platform can feel overwhelming.”
