I've been considering this question for a while, and I think it really comes down to what you want to use your blog for.

For example, Tumblr is visually very cool, you can edit your own html and css pretty easily, but you're limited in terms of structure etc...

However, it has a very "social" feel about it, and is great for hosting all different types of content, not necessarily "article-style" posts like most blog networks encourage.

Wordpress is also a very powerful blogging platform.

If you're into plugins, more complex structure and customization, and your own full-force content management system, then Wordpress could be for you.

Blogger is similar, but perhaps a little more restrictive. The free themes are not that great, but you can play around with your layout and hack the themes using your own html and css.

The thing I like about Blogger is how well connected it is with other Google products like Google+ and Google Adsense.

If your main focus is marketing and monetising your blog, that could be appealing...

Medium is a beautiful blogging platform with a great community vibe. It still feels a little bit exclusive, but the reason is that they are working hard on claiming that niche as their own.

In the same ilk is Svbtle - self-described as a "new kind of magazine" - I can see it growing and growing.

New blogging platforms are cropping up everywhere these days, so there are far too many to mention here - but my original point still stands:

Work out what it is you want to focus on, find out which platform helps you achieve those goals, and go for it! At the end of the day, it's the content that makes a blog shine.

My vote goes to WordPress as I am using it from last 1 year. It is very easy as a newbie can handle the functions and customize the setting with short training. The plugins make everything easy. If you need to add something in your Wordpress, download related plugin and activate.

There are many platform on which you can create blog with minutes. It is very easy process to create blog or complete website.

We can use blogger, wordpress, wix weebly etc.

There are many others website also available on the internet, you can join freely to create blog.

But you put question about  best platform.

So according to my opinion if you want to join free platform without purchasing domain and web hosting then blogger is best for you there are many blogger tutorials are available on the internet, YouTube etc.

If you want to purchase domain name and web hosting and want to work permanent then use CMS system which is WordPress.

So, it is my Guide for you,
