In the previous post, we saw what blogging is all about- or at least a glimpse of it- and realized that is it not as easy and straightforward as many people may assume. On the other hand, it has never reached the vicinity of rocket science perse. A weblog can be a very good avenue for sharing experiences, news, feelings, inspiration, and other useful and useless things. It can also be a way in which people earn some cash. Believe it or not, there are quite a number of people who make millions of shillings weekly by going through this kind of business. That said, how to create a blog. By the time you decide to ask yourself, how do I create my own blog? You must have decided on the direction you would like to take in terms of content and product. As such, I will go straight to the point.
There are two main ways of creating a blog or a site for that matter. The first one is the easiest and it explains the reason for the existence of so many blog sites on the internet platform. This method has helped many beginners to gain better understanding of what it is that blogging is all about. In fact, correct me if I am wrong, most people, groups, companies, or agencies that are now defined as bigwigs in the field of blogging did their budding stage practice through free blog creation platforms. In other words, one can make use of the services offered by some of the platforms to create weblogs for free. The advantage of using free site creation platforms are many. The ones that stand out include the fact that they are pocket friendly, they are not as demanding in terms of time and resources, and they tend to lead to unfathomable levels of success if the correct buttons are pressed. Of course blogging on a site that is created freely is one of the greatest advantages. You don’t use a dime. You see, when you invest much into a venture, there is always the pressure of gaining returns. Something known as ROI (Return On Investment). Something that you get for free does not pose the same intensity of pressure (or should I say force per unit surface area?). Moreover, when you are committed, learn the rules, be as innovative as possible, you might as well succeed immensely. Even better than other blogging sites that are created. I will not bore you with the specific steps (but won’t hesitate if requested) of creating free weblogs. Instead I will present to you some of the most common, productive, and strategically placed sites that offer free blogging platforms.
