If you want to start a personal blog then you are going to need a place where you can blog. Blogging platforms make this easy for you by freeing you from all the technical work involved in managing a blog or website online. Here are three most popular free blogging platforms that are recommended for beginners.
Blogger is free to use and offers higher level of customization options as compared to other free blogging platforms mentioned in this list.You can signup using your Google account and start blogging in a simple to use interface. You get a subdomain (e.g yourblogname.blogspot .com). Blogger blogs can be customized by changing the theme and you can also attach your own custom domain (e.g www. yourblog. com).
Wordpress is the most developed platform that you can use to create a personal blog. It provides easy way to create new posts and has a vast catalog of both free and premium themes that can be used to style your blog.
The downside of wordpress.com is that you'd have to pay if you want to customize your theme or attach your own domain to the free subdomain (e.g: yourblog. wordpress. com).
Wordpress does offer the open source wordpress.org that can be used to host your own blog but that requires some technical skills to manage so it's not recommended if you don't want to get into the tech side of blogging.
Tumblr is more than just place where you can share your ideas, it's a community where you will find like minded people and follow content based on your interests. it's easy to start, and you can even follow other bloggers and topics. Tumblr blogs can also be customized by using free and premium themes. Custom domain is also allowed.
