There are a variety of blog hosting sites available. Every day thousands of new blogs are created and new information is being released. Many of these blogs are hosted on free blog sites such as blogger.com, wordpress.com or tumblr.com. Although the format of each of these sites is very different, they each offer a relatively easy format and a free domain to host your blog on. There are other sites that you can design that will charge a fee for your page but allow you more freedom and flexibility in the design and functionality of your website.
Should you choose to use one of the free blog hosting sites, there are a multitude of benefits that you can reap. These sites are widely known and their formatting is easily recognized by most all browsers as well as blog readers on the market today. They offer interesting plugins that you can install on your page to perform specific functions such as a blog counter statistic, the option to follow the blog by email, the option of having a photo slide show appear, and much more. If you are interested in using one of these free sites but would like to have your own domain name that doesn’t include their ending, you can purchase this each year as well. The cost is relatively low and usually averages between ten and twenty dollars annually.
Should you choose to design your own blog website from scratch, a lot more work will be needed initially. The benefit is that you can design the page to function exactly as you choose and you will have complete freedom and flexibility to alter code as you desire.
