  1. I already used three of the five free blog creating service mentioned in this post. WordPress and the blogger platform is the best I think. I personally recommend the blogger platform for the beginners.

  2. Creating a blog website can be one of the most powerful decisions you can ever take when it comes to your business. It acts like a central hub where you can get most of the traffic which can turn into leads and even sales.

  3. Yeah it may be powerful decisions one can ever take to creating a blog, but thing of matter is that, creating a blog is not a task but running a blog and getting decent traffic is challenge and I think WordPress is just awesome and Blogger is also good.

  4. I have used 3 of these – Blogger, WordPress and Tumblr. For professional blogs there is nothing better than WP, however when it comes to personal blogging – I somehow feel blogger is much better. Specially because when you are blogging as a hobby, you would like a simple approach to design etc and I think blogger has an edge in that.

  5. Live Journal and Weebly are not good as they have less functionalities. Everyone should go with wordpress and blogger. Tumble is good for micro blogging or for sharing quotes and personal ideas.
