When I decided to start my first blog, I was faced with this hard decision of how to start. I needed something that was flexible, something that will cost less or be free. I heard of WordPress, yeah WordPress was cool, but I learnt I could not monetize unless I host one by myself, which I could not do then. I visited IPage, the story was the same, I tried Wix site, it was a no way. And then I realized that Google blogger was a gift to beginners. If not for Google blogger I may never have been able to dive into blogging.
Google blogger is easy to understand
If you are new to the blogging world, you will find Google blogger very easy to understand, since it is written in CSS and XML. These web design packages has been on for years, there is hardly someone familiar with the internet that do not have a basic knowledge of HTML & CSS. Don’t worry if you don’t, they are easy to learn, just google Html & CSS Tutorial and you get a handful of PDF file to download and learn. Google blogger has a lot of customizable templates you can easily modify to get your site up and running.
Google blogger services are free
Isn’t that great, that you can enjoy a free service and yet you are allowed to make profit from it when you monetize. WordPress might also be easy, but the drawback is you can’t monetize it’s free service. And not only that, they also put advertisement on your site. In others words, you are working for them, when using the free service.
