Blogging Tip# 2
Choosing a Blog Hosting Site?
To WordPress or to Blogger, that is the question?!
WordPress and Blogger are the two most popular blogging sites out there. I use Blogger. I have tried WordPress, wasn’t feeling it, I guess I didn’t like WordPress formatting. At the time when I tried WordPress I had already been using Blogger for about a year, then something happened and I figured I’d give WordPress a try, but it didn’t work out for me, so I went back to Blogger and purchased a new domain.
My suggestion is play around with both WordPress and Blogger and see which one you feel most comfortable with. Once you have that down, then create your blog, by choosing (your blog name).wordpress.com or (your blog name).Blogspot.com, familiarize yourself with the different sections in Blogger or WordPress before you start publishing you postings. Pulsed blog has a good comparison of the two.
Don’t be so quick to purchase your domain name unless you know for sure that’s what you want your domain name to be. I’ll write a separate blogging tip on Domain Names, I find this topic very interesting.For now let’s work on choosing a blog hosting site, familiarizing yourselves with the blog hosting site, finding cool and free templates/layouts, and posting/publishing some posts.
For those of you that have a blog which hosting site do you use and why? Blogger or WordPress?
