Create a free blog

free blogOn some websites you can create a free blog without paying anything. But, is it worth it? What can you expect from such a free service? Getting a good and free blog sounds too good to be true. A lot of people create their first blog on a free server within some minutes. But when their blogs start having good traffic, it´s when the first problems appear. There are several problems with free blogs we will discuss in this article.

The first big problem of a free blog is its domain. As you are not paying anything for your blog, you are just getting a subdomain of the server.  The web address of your blog would be for example myblog.wordpress.com  and it doesn´t look very professional. People will trust more in a website called www.myblog.com as they will know that you are the real owner of this domain.  Using a free blog with a subdomain every potential visitor sees from the very first moment that you are using a free service. We recommend you paying 5 or 6 dollars a month for an own domain and good hosting instead of using just a subdomain on some free server. Don´t be afraid if you never hosted a blog on a server before. It´s very simple and we will explain it to you in our how to start a blog tutorial.

The second problem of a free blog is that you can´t adjust every detail as you want. You just can change only a few things. Using your own domain and server you get a lot of possibilities more when you start a blog and you can install all the themes and plug-ins you want. Using a free blog you lose control and you have limited access to recourses.
