Different Blog Platforms

Posted on March 19, 2011 by

There are lots of different blog platforms out there. Some platforms are free and some are not of course, you need to pay for it.

The different blog platforms that I know are blogger.com, wordpress.org, wordpress.com, Movable type, LiveJournal, Bloglines, tripod, squareplace, and typepad.

As what I said, some of those platforms are free like blogger.com, wordpress.org and bloglines. Typepad and squareplace are some of the platform that need some money. It is up for the blogger which platforms are they going to use.

Most of the bloggers will choose to have their own domain rather than having your blog on a free hosted site. But, for those who don’t have that much budget they rather used the free platforms.

There are some factors that you need to consider when it comes in choosing the right blog platform for you. Through this factors you can answer lots of question that is in your mind.

First is, your Goals. As a blogger you need to know what is your main purpose. Do you see yourself blogging for a long period of time? Do you want to earn money through blogging or you just want to have fun writing different stuff? Those are some questions that you need to think about. Next is the Budget. Do you have enough budget to start a blog on your own domain or you will stick to those platforms that are free?. Finally, how technologically knowledgable are you when it comes to blogging? Do you have any backgrounds when it comes to blogging and designing a blog? I suggest choose the platforms where you are comfortable enough of using it. You need to have some knowledge when it comes to coding either HTML or CSS.

Blogger.com and WordPress.org are the two of the most popular blog platforms. Blogger.com has its different function that are easy to use while WordPress comes with the search function that are already installed. Just like blogger, wordpress also has thousands of template where a blogger can choose from.

There are lots to choose from just make sure you choose the right blog platforms that fits your needs and capabilities.

Those are some of the factors that a blogger should know before starting his/her blog. Enjoy blogging!
