A blog is one of the best ways to express your opinion on today’s technology community. You should be able to make a decision when it wants to start blogging because many more issues that you should consider as well. The first problem that arises is that you have to determine in advance whether to use free or paid blogging. And this is certainly of both have advantages and disadvantages of the features that are given of each.
Before we talk about the advantages and disadvantages of more than a second difference of this blog, if you already know the meaning of a blog actually. I’ll tell you, what is the free blog? This is a blogging service that is free of charge at you, it means you are freely able to make and use the blogging service. The most popular blogging platform to use is WordPress and Blogger. Apart from that there is one that is widely used as well, namely Tumblr, but for this platform could be used for blogs and social bookmarking.
In contrast to paid blog, unlike the free blog that is free without any payment at all. A paid blog costs you must pay when you want to use it. For payment, there are available for annual or monthly period. There are even some websites that require payment for the blog each month. For paid blog is typically to provide a self-hosted platform where you can create a blog freely in accordance with the design and theme of your own. It makes encouragement to add content to your blog on a regular basis and to learn as much about blogging as possible raise your success potential.
Although the paid blog allows you to change the design according to your needs, but many people prefer to use a free blog. Because a free blog is generally inexpensive and are also available to support more to its users. Moreover, you are around a blogger who are beginners and do not know very well about HTML or website design, this free blog you can use to start blogging. Even a free blog also provides a lot of themes that you can choose according to your taste with attractive designs to be set.
As I told you before that the paid blog does provide you more freedom to make your own design layout and web appearance. And there is any option you can select for free themes or buying the more interesting themes if you want to create your own design. On paid blog you would get the domain name. Different with free blogs where you will be needed to put into the platform’s name within the URL as subdomain, but on paid blog give you a professional URL independent of the platform.
Not all paid blogs have advantages. One disadvantage is you would have to install an operating platform and complete search engine optimization(SEO) by yourself, but it’s different with free blogs do this automatically. And your responsibility to promote your blog.
If you want the simplicity blog, you can use free blog to get started blogging. And all promotion is completed automatic, but you can use one basic design unless you want for defined ones, you have to pay it. One has to remember that by using free themes, there will be other blogs that identical with your blog. For paid blog you need more work to create your design and theme yourself. By creating by yourself there is no identical theme with your blog. And now the decision is yours.
