Do You Have A Blog?

I'm thinking about starting a blog, not sure what site I want to use though. If you have a blog, what blog site do you use and why did you choose it over the other options?

  • Yes I have a blog. I use blogger/blogspot as my blogging platform. As for why? No real reason other that was what a relative was using and so that's what I started to use when I started my blog.

    All blogging platforms have their pluses and minuses. There are many that will say having a blogger/blogspot blog is bad if you are hoping to turn your blog into a way of earning some cash. That if you really want to earn cash your better off with the self-hosting wordpress blog. (That mean you have to pay to blog).

    Although making money blogging is NOT easy....everyone is trying to do it!

  • I use wordpress.com. I like that I can see how many people per day are looking at my blog, and how they found my blog (whether they were went by a search engine, or by me....etc.,) I tried blogspot first, and actually had no problems there, but moved to wordpress when I saw some friends blogs, and how they worked.

    Check them all out, and see which has the features your looking for, and have fun!!

  • Yes, I have a blog to support my website. I use WordPress which I really like. I've been to workshops on blogging and have heard many say that WordPress is good for SEO. Here's a link: Amigram blog for nanna’s, momma’s and families

    CM's Mommy Movers and Shakers group recently had a post on the pros and cons of different types of blogs. Here's the link:
    Blogger vs WordPress vs Merchant Circle

    Good luck,

  • I use blogger as well. My blog is just for me to write mainly. Research all the platforms and then decide.
