Starting a blog on a free blogging service is the cheapest and easiest way to get your name out there. To create your own blog here, you just need to register on the resource. After that, you can immediately start filling your blog. Now let’s look at the main advantages and disadvantages of free blogs.
Pros of a free blog:
1 No investment required. A blog is created very quickly and absolutely free.
2 To maintain such a blog is quite simple and everyone can do it. You just need to fill out a short form and click the "publish" button.
3 The speed of blog promotion. A new entry immediately gets into the field of view of search engines. This is a great help for beginner bloggers. But do not forget also that there are thousands of blogs like yours!
4 The update is automatic. The update does not require your participation, this is done by the programmers of the service.
Cons of a free blog:
1 Limited functionality. Getting a blog like everyone else, averaged, you will not be able to change anything in it on your own. The only way out is to switch to a paid account. But it won’t be a free blog anymore.
2 Standard design. You will be offered only a few of the simplest design options, which will not give the blog any originality or solidity.
3 Difficulty in choosing a domain name. When you register, you are given the opportunity to choose a domain name for yourself. However, finding a free name that you would like can be very difficult due to the very large number of users of free blogging services.
4 Lack of any rights to your blog. Formally, only content will be yours on a free blog service. All activities carried out by you on the blog are subject to strict censorship by the administration. If your opinions do not converge, it may even go so far that your blog will be closed.
We hope that all these points will help you decide when you decide which blog is better to start – paid or still free.
