  2. Hello Babanature,

    As a blogger, for me, I feel it is a good idea to start from a free blogging platform. And if you see your progression, you can migrate to a paid site.

    You have given a wonderful tutorial on how to create an account on both WordPress and Blogger respectively.

    Thanks for your wonderful tutorial as always.. have a good week

  10. Writing a blog post is a little like driving; you can study the Highway Code (or read articles telling you how to write a blog post) for months, but nothing can prepare you for the real thing like getting behind the wheel and hitting the open road. First, a disclaimer – the entire process of writing a blog post often takes more than a couple of hours, even if you can type eighty words per minute and your writing skills are sharp. You really only have 2–3 seconds to grab your user’s attention, convince them to click, and actually read your blog post. Creating a blog is not a difficult task but you will need to follow some perfect steps.

  16. Great, free alternatives here! I think starting with a free blog or website solution is a good first place to get your feet wet and see if you enjoy blogging. If anything, places like Medium are great options allowing you to blog and reach a quick audience too without having to invest much other than time.
