A lot of intending bloggers are face with the challenge of where and how to set up a free blog. With blogging being a source of income, most intending bloggers are face with the challenge of the right platform and the most profitable niches to start their blogging career. Before we process for further, I will like to like you know some things about blogger platform.

Blogger is a blogging service provided by the tech giant Google. It is free, reliable most of the time, and quite enough to publish your stuff on the web. The downside of the platform is that it is not really owned by you. Google runs this service and has the right to shut it down, or shutdown your access to it at any time. The service offers a more robust secure platform. You don’t need to worry about managing your server’s resources, securing your blog, or creating backups.

Over the years there have being a lot of platform to choose from ranging from free blogging platform to self hosted platform. If you are very good in coding and website creating then the best platform will be self hosted platform as this will give you full control of your site. You have the choice to design it the way you wish and also what you intent to post on it. While on the other hand, with free blogging platform you are limited to some choices with which your carrier will state in their terms of agreement. 

Just as you are limited to some choices on free blogging platform, it also has its advantages some of which is

2) You are provided with a lot of free tool to help you start you blogging experience.
3) With these platforms, you don’t have to worry about cost as they help you foot the bills.
