Blogging is hot right now, many individuals are wanting to start a blog. Here are some things you need to know about create a free blog. 1st we talk about free blogging platforms and after we discuss about self hosted blogging methods.

Websites are hosted, or in other words stored, on specialized computers referred to as servers. Servers are much more powerful than your laptop, which allows them to manage multiple different people accessing the same website at the same time. This is made with the same components found in an average computer like a CPU, RAM memory, and other parts that just happen to be a bit more powerful than the average personal computer. Owners of multiple servers rent them out to individuals who own websites in a process called web hosting. Several common web hosting solutions are described below.

Squarespace is one of the best blogging platforms for artists and designers because of its swish templates and polished feel. There’s no free Squarespace plan; to create a blog you need to be on at least the $12/month Personal plan. To monetize your blog, you’ll need to upgrade to the $18/month Business plan. That sounds expensive, so is it worth it? Squarespace has improved its blog offering considerably in recent years. It used to be that on the Personal plan you were limited to just 20 pages. Now that cap has been lifted entirely. But the real value for money lies in the aesthetics. The New York-based company is well known for the visual quality of its templates. They’re what makes Squarespace one of the best blogging platforms on the market. You can browse free and paid templates by industry and select one that suits your blog’s needs. Squarespace has taken great care with how your content is laid out on its templates. The designs are top-of-the-range and features like grid layout and 3D scrolling can give your blog a unique look and feel.

Weebly bills itself more as a website-creation system than something for solely creating a blog. It’s based around drag-and-drop components, which enable you to quickly create new pages. However, blogging is also part of the system, and you get access to customisable layouts, a bunch of free themes, and the usual sharing features you’d expect, to spread your words far and wide.

If you are looking for a full content management system, Joomla is another great option for bloggers. In terms of the ease of use, Joomla may have more of a learning curve than WordPress, but can be much easier to use than Drupal. Many businesses and large corporations prefer this type of platform because it can give you flexibility with a wide range of content options. Joomla, however, can be expensive. While the first month is free, after that a blogger can be charged anywhere from $20-$100 per month depending on the options and upgrades they want. For many novice bloggers, this can be a high cost unless the blog is attached to an existing business that already generates a profit.

Install WordPress. Blogging requires software, and the best that I’ve found is WordPress. It’s easy, quick, and best of all, free. You can set up WordPress through your host (Bluehost does this for you for free). Otherwise, you have to go through WordPress.org to download the software and then upload it to a host. (Note: Using WordPress.org is different from signing up for a free blog at WordPress.com.) If you’ve once decided to have a blog, but have been putting it off because you assumed making a blog will be difficult or time-consuming, you have probably missed the most recent developments. Thanks to current user-friendly tools, it just takes about 15 minutes to build a blog and running it only costs a few dollars a month ($3-4 per month in total) -cheaper than your favorite cup of coffee. (All information in this site is FREE.)

One of the major benefits of WordPress is its great list of free plugins, many of which can be found at the WordPress plugin repo. There are also many premium plugins that are available at varying costs. Technically, as a new blogger wanting to start your blog with minimal investment, you may not need any premium services or plugins. But if you don’t have an investment issue, you can grab some of the premium plugins to help you increase your site’s functionality (like boosting your on-page SEO optimization).

This is a blog about the Complete WordPress Builder Guide which is solely managed by me alone. This is the first blog in my life. I wish this could be a successful blog which you guys like. A bit about myself. I’m a web developer, a mobile app developer and also a WordPress website developer. I have about 8 years experience in the software development industry. I truly love programming and started my development life since I was in university. The reason I started this blog is that I found out that not every business owner / blogger / seller can afford to hire a developer to build a website for themselves. By using the traditional html web development method is even more costly and difficult to manage. More information on click here.
