Well, In this Post I will show you How to create your own blog. Firstly I want you to understand about Blogging Platforms.

There are many Free Blogging Platforms that offer you to create a fully featured blog within few minutes. So You no longer have worry about Hosting and other features to inculcate in your website. They are not just easy to manage but also packed with bunch of features. So Let’s create it!.

WordPress.com is a Free service provided by WordPressIt lets you easily create your own blog and write about anything that interest you.Your database, your images and other files will be stored on WordPress.com server.

They give free sub domain like example.wordpress.com But they do have an option of custom domain (example.com) and for that you need to upgrade your account. By upgrading your account, you will also be able to have your own custom design. So you will be able to design your blog according to your needs.

How to get a WordPress.com blog?
  1. Go to WordPress.com Sign Up page
  2. You will be taken to a super easy registration page, where you will have to fill the details.
  3. After registration you will receive a confirmation email in your inbox from WordPress asking you to confirm your registration.
  4. After Confirming! You are ready to publish your thoughts in newly created blog.

Blogger is another free service started by Pyra Labs in year 1999. Later Blogger was sold to Google in 2002.

It’s a very popular service which provides lots and lots of features to its users. Which includes posts, Pages, Comments, Stats, Earning, Layout, Template and basic with advanced settings page. It also have a feature to add custom domain. But while registration you have to go for example.blogspot.com

The best thing I like about Blogger is its Earning Page which let’s you check your blogger earning statistics from dashboard itself. And the another best feature offered by Blogger is custom template, If you know How to code HTML and CSS website with little XML than you can easily design your blogger layout without any cost. But if you don’t know coding than you can simply grab any blogger template from Blogger Template Gallery. You can also search for wide range of blogger templates on Google.

How to get a Blogger blog?
  1. Go to Blogger.com homepage.
  2. Enter you Gmail email account details and Sign in.
  3. Well, here no confirmation will be required as Blogger account will be created with your Gmail account details.
  4. On the next page, There you will find an option to create a blog, click it.
  5. A window will pop up asking for your new blog title and its address also you can choose any template right below address column.
  6. Choose the template and click “Create Blog!” That’s it.

Blog.com is another leading Blogging service offering you to create beautiful WordPress powered blogs within minutes. As this is free, unlike Blogger it shows ads on your website which is not under your control.But you can remove those ads by upgrading from your current free plan to paid. At free plan you will be given only 2 GB storage space which quite OK for starters. Although this space will be increased as per your upgrade.

But One thing is really nice about Blog.com is that they offers very beautiful templates and powerful plugins. As it’s powered by WordPress you will have most of those features here just like your WordPress.com account.

How to get a Blog.com blog?
  1. Go to Blog.com Sign Up page.
  2. Fill the short sign up form which will only ask you to enter email and password. After filling click “Next”
  3. Now on the next page, you will be asked to enter your blog address and title that you want, Just fill them and click “Start Blogging”.
  4. That’s it, your account is created and you are ready to start blogging right away.

That’s it you just created your place in the globe which let’s you share your experience with the world.
