How to choose your preferred blogging platform ? Choosing where you want to build blog is pretty much the first thing you have to do. I’m going to take a leap and assume you’ve heard of WordPress, and this is the platform I advocate. It’s massive. It’s by far one of the biggest blogging platforms in the world, with countless plugins and add-ons and almost infinite ways to design and layout your blog. There are more than 82 million active users of WordPress = a lot, basically. There are other alternatives however, and they are listed below: Blogger – Definitely the next best thing to WordPress. Tumblr – Half social network, half blog. Interesting, and very simple to use. Even though WordPress is bigger (and probably better) than those two, here are my reasons why you should still go with WordPress : Super easy set-up and is free to use Tons of free themes and layouts (I’m not kidding, there’s gazillions). There’s a massive support forum in case you get stuck (you won’t, but it’s nice to have it there if you need it). Your blog will be insanely fast and it’ll also look Functionality and form – perfect! People can interact with you easily. Your content can be shared, commented on, and so on.
