There are a lot of platforms out there that are good for someone looking to start a blog. Each platform has its perks, so here is a list of my favorites, so you can pick which one is best suited for you.
- Blogger - this site is made and run by Google. The only thing you need to get started is a googlemail account, and it is completely free to use. Its easy to get started and customise each blog you write, but is very tied up with google and the google adsense program.
- Wordpress - I know you have already mentioned Wordpress, but I thought I would tell you a little bit about it. This site is brilliant in terms of customisation. The user can dress the blog up with new designs and plug ins. I would say it is the best option, but for a new blogger, it can be a little complicated.
- Tumblr- This could be described as more of a social media site than a blog. As well as making your own blog, other peoples will fill up your feed. This is a fun way to blog, but very different from other sites out there.
- Medium- This blogging platform was set up by the people that created Twitter. It is a good platform to use if you want to show your content to a lot of people, however if you want a fun, customised blog, this is not the place to be.
