First thing you need to choose before starting your blog is a blogging platform. There are many platforms available but the question is which one we should choose?
Yesterday, One of my friends asked me which blogging platform is best Because he wants to start his new blog.
I suggest him to choose WordPress.org because I am using it and it is awesome.
Then I got an idea to write a post about the Blogging Platforms. Many of the beginners got confused which should they choose?
Many don’t have money to purchase hosting and domain so they don’t choose WordPress.org. So Here is the list of Some Free and Paid Blogging Platform and it will help you to choose your blogging platform.
I hope no one is unaware of the WordPress self-hosted platform.
WordPress.org is the most popular website developing platform. It has many unique features which makes it different and useful.
It is a downloadable platform, you need to purchase a hosting account and domain to host your WordPress website. I have a list of Free hosting providers which you can use to sign up for a free hosting account.

The main feature is Plugin, WordPress has the plugin for every task which makes that task easy, plugins make easy for you to make your website without having knowledge of coding. That’s the reason is the most popular and most choosable platform.
Whenever we talk about free blogging platform, Blogger.com comes first on the list.
Blogger is a blog-publishing service that allows multi-user blogs with time-stamped entries. It was developed by Pyra Labs, which was bought by Google in 2003. Generally, the blogs are hosted by Google at a subdomain of blogspot.com.
Let me make easier, Blogger is a Google product which also known as Blogspot. You can use it to create a blog for free without purchasing hosting. But you need to purchase a custom domain otherwise your blog URL will look like:

Don’t confuse between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. Both are a different platform, WordPress.com is a totally free. Which means you don’t need to purchase hosting for this. But in WordPress.org you must have to purchase hosting and domain.
In WordPress.com, You can’t take benefit of Plugins. The plugin is only for WordPress.org (self-hosted) users. Which make a huge difference between these two platforms.
But like Blogger.com, You need to purchase a domain for your blog/website otherwise it will look like:
Wix is another a good platform to launch your blog. It is not fully free but you can get all your needs in the free plan.
Wix.com is a cloud-based web development platform that was first developed and popularized by the Israeli company also called Wix. It allows users to create HTML5 websites and mobile sites through the use of online drag and drop tools.
In this, you also need to purchase a domain for your blog. Otherwise, it looks like:
These are some free platform which you can use to build your Blog. There are more like these, but I have used these tools personally that’s why I am recommending.
I hope you find it helpful If you do so, then don’t forget to share this with your friends. Or if you know more blogging platform which I didn’t cover here then tell me by leaving a comment below, you can also connect with me on Facebook and Twitter.
