WordPress

You’ve probably heard of WordPress before and that’s for good reason. This is a great platform for first timers and it’s also one of the world’s most popular ones. There are two blogging platforms on offer: WordPress.com and WordPress.org. The difference between the two is that the WordPress.com sites are hosted on the company’s server while WordPress.org sites are hosted on an external servers. This platform’s free to use but there are costs attached to upgrades that you might feel are essential as you become more involved with your blog.

Blogger

This is another free platform that’s worth looking into. This site’s easy to use and it integrates with Google Apps well but it’s not for beginners because you need to understand HTML to a degree. The platform has widgets available but you still need to have a degree of experience before using this site.

Tumblr

Tumblr is a platform worth considering. It’s really easy to use and it’s set up for new comers. There are loads of customisable options, and as it’s owned by Yahoo you’re encouraged to become part of their community which can only be a good thing for newbies.
