One of the first questions, especially if you are new to blogging, would be “Should I get a free blog or should I get a paid blog?”
First and foremost, what is a free blog, and what is a paid blog?
A free blog, as the name suggests, is a blog that you can set up for free – Website such as Blogger allow you to setup a blog for free (all you need is to fill up a simple form which takes less than 5 minutes to complete, and after which you can start blogging away).
However, for a paid blog, in order to set one up, you need to get 2 things – Domain name (this is your .com, .net, .me, etc.) and hosting (to contain the files related to your blog). After which, you will install your blog platform (most people use WordPress) from under your hosting server (I shall not go into the complexities of how to set up a paid blog here in this post).
If you are new to blogging, which one should you opt for? In this post, I am going to show you the pros and cons of each (free blog vs paid blog) so as to help you decide which one is better for you.
