There’s this propaganda that since Google owns Blogger, they tend to favor Blogger accounts. I won’t say that this is illogical, but from my experience, there’s no such favoritism.
With your self-hosted WordPress blog you can choose to monetize it using various revenue sharing services such as Google AdSense & In-Text advertising. You may also want to sell advertising space on your blog at a later date should you wish to.
WordPress is an extremely powerful platform used by many of the top bloggers. It will take time to learn the program and master how to use it. I believe the time spent will be well worth it and will help get you on track to create a great blog to share with the world. I’ve been very happy with WordPress and will continue to use it on all of my blogs. As always, do your research and go with the companies and platforms that you are most comfortable with. If you do choose to use any of my recommendations, it would be very much appreciative if you click on the Artisteer or Bluehost affiliate links in this post. Doing so will help support Think Entrepreneurship so we can continue to write and provide tips for entrepreneurs.
Cloud hosting is a somewhat new web hosting solution, though cloud computing practices have been in use for more than three decades. And while there may be some minute security issues, they are no more prevalent than what you would find in a shared hosting account. The true upside here is the ability for your web site to access its resources over multiple servers.
No more external links or separate websites for your blog – on the wordpress platform, your blog is built right in. So for businesses, this makes updated your blog and your website extremely easy – and helps your website gain rankings on the search engines because your content is constantly being updated.
I have created a header for my daughter’s blog already, but she is still deciding what she wants her domain name to be. The ones we have tried to get so far have been taken. My daughter’s blog is going to be about cheerleading.
One of the biggest reasons why so many bloggers choose WordPress is because of its creative limitless and the simple fact that it’s completely free to download. Of course there is the exception of paying a small hosting fee to host your website but to be to frank that’s just a matter of a few dollars each month. If you choose to monetize your blog you can easily make that back within a few months anyway.
