        hi Greg, did you pay anything for wordpress…? I just signed up and it said that you could customize your page but in the end when I changed my background, colour scheme etc it said I had to “upgrade” i.e. pay $99, for the changes to be effected!

        1. Heather

          Sarah, I think I know what happened. Some of the themes on WordPress are “premium” themes, so you have to pay for them. There are many free ones, so if you don’t want to pay for one, choose from those.

      does anyone know why my blogger site would repeatedly tell me i have logged out from another location? i cannot access it or post to it because everytime i click something it tells me “you have logged out from another location” it then gives the option to log in again or close that dialog either option i choose makes it do that whole dialog again. its ridiculous that i cannot get help from google as they have nowhere to talk to a person who has answers and the forum they send you to doesn’t respond. thier customer support is nonexistent and it seems to me like there has to be a way to fix it but noone seems to know. anyone here have any ideas?

    2. Emmanuel Uduezue

      I agree with you that blogetery is good but i would not advice a blogger to use blogetery to build a serious income online but they always having server downtime and spam content issue. I thought i might add this piece of tip.

  1. Low cost webhosting

    Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to mention that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I will be subscribing for your feed and I am hoping you write once more very soon!

    1. dentist philadelphia

      Hey very nice site!! Man .. Excellent .. Amazing .. I will bookmark your website and take the feeds also…I’m happy to find so many useful information here in the post, we need work out more techniques in this regard, thanks for sharing.

  2. Iris

    Wow, I’ve been using BLOGGER for ages now and I’m glad to see it on top. This post is worth reading and a helpful one too!

  3. William Shakespeare

    Can you explain your use of the term “much more higher” for your English-speaking audience?

    Hi,
    Thanx so so so much for this valuable info. I am newbie in SEO and exhausted form last 3 days for this info. You are the savior…… Thnx alot again and again…

  5. Carmela Chanel

    I used to do freelance SEO, and my best advice is that learning SEO yourself is the most affordable/effective combination.

  6. Nanadanny

    I think your analyses count a lot and quite scientific compared to similar ones I read somewhere else. Keep it up!

  7. Free Press Release

    I like blogger.com. I think it is quite easy for beginners to use. It is a versatile blogging platform. You can personalize your blog easily. They even allow you to upload your own templates. That is a nice feature.

  8. John Allinson

    Thanks for this very helpful website. I have a small ESL summer school and I am considering opening a blog for student feedback. I guess that is safer than giving direct access to the site www. parklang.co.uk.
    Any of the above suggested blogging sites likely to be more suitable than others for this purpose?

  9. Penny

    This site was a great help to me! I’m using wordpress which is really easy to use for a novice and has a lot of features, compared to another site I was using. If you get stuck it’s easy to find an answer too.

    1. Bruce Post author

      WordPress is the most popular way to blog, and it has a fantastic community to find solutions.

  10. david

    This website was an excellent help to me! I’m using wordpress platforms which is really simple to use for a beginner and has a lot of functions, when in comparison to another website I was using. If you get trapped it’s readily available an response too.

  11. movieman

    Hi an thaks for your list , i have created my blogs on blogger (<the best for me), wordpress and blogster.Actually i setup a blog on blogadoo.com.
    I think its a nice blog community too and my first impression is very good.Will write soon a review of this.
    A great think i saw is that you can easy edit the html code of a template and they have no ads.
    Will report soon.

  12. Justine

    Thanks for your post! So glad you listed Blogetery – I am an avid WordPress user, but hate how WordPress.com does not support Adsense. You have solved that problem for me. THANK YOU!! :)

  13. David

    I have a paid for wordpress blog but want to move the hosting etc but keep the domain, I’m a complete techno-phobe so need this is layman’s terms, is it possible? If so how do I go about it?
    Thanks

  14. Malcolm K. Smith

    Tumblr is simply the best. They have better layouts and better ways to customize. All the other blogs from my experience are much harder. I have two blogs i run on Tumblr. Both i am able to run very easy. Check out my Fashion blog. Wardrobe911.tumblr.com amd my personal blog Siponmalcolm.tumblr.com

  15. Debbie

    I appreciate this resource – it is a nice list for anyone looking for a simple way to get started with a blog. I have shared with my readers that blogs can be used for communication, just for fun, or for profit. Just a word of caution to anyone new to blogging – if you choose to blog about something you are truly interested in (and you should!) — you may find that you become obsessed with blogging.

  16. Mikey

    A useful list of blogs mate. These blogs rank really good helping different posts to be indexed quickly by crawlers. Thanks for the share

  17. Mary

    I really like the information about blog sites. I think the best is WordPress and Tumblr. I’ve tried many on your list, and these two I find are easily accessible.

  18. Sotero Garcia

    Guest blogging can be your best friend when it comes to leading readers to your own blog. Find a good, relevant blog whose owner will allow you to post. Then create some awesomely written posts and make them stand out among other guest posts. Use this tool to give readers a taste of what they can find by hopping over to your blog!

  19. Blogging Biz Coach

    Great list of sites! Long before I moved over to wordpress, I started on Blogger. I think doing so taught me the discipline it took to produce consistent and useful content. My blogging has grown over the years and now produces a pretty good steam of income.

    Anyway, again – great list!

  20. Michelle

    You can also blog on health related topics on healthforums.info. It’s a great site for health related articles and there is a forum on there too!

  21. agus Bali

    hai guys…could u please give me some imformations about IM with Affiliate. i interested it. thx b 4.

  22. Lisa Campbell

    I would like to use your top 10 blogs in a non-profit website. I will put a link to your page but would also like to reprint it on our page. I live in the far north and internet access is not great so it is sometimes easier to actually use the printed text in our website and credit the original piece. Please let me know if this would be OK with you. Many thanks!

    I NEED HELP. Anyone who is an expert on Blogspot, or WordPress, contact me and give me some help. Share what you know on some kind of basis and it will come back to you. Help others and you will be helped. I have a couple dozen blogs on Word Press, one on Weebly, four or five on Word Press. I would like to consolidate, but don’t quite know how. I have management skills and great English skills, and other skills, but my tech skills are not so great. I want to partner with others to get great things done. I even have a blog on Partnering.

    I made utilization of the pre-designed templates for this blog (click on the link below) and would like to receive comments galore upon it. Can anyone help my blog increase in publicity without paying for anything like Google Nonsense or any of these corporations who just want to “pilfer all the pitas”, so to speak, such as pointing out a free blog which is popular in nature that would subsequently direct adequate site traffic to my blog at no cost or know someone who can refer me to a blog specifically for upcoming rap artists? I create my own platinum song lyrics and Youtube videos and would value the support as I attempt to become more famous. I am gradually acquiring a decent presence on social media networks and would love to experience optimal results upon my Blogger profile i.e. Blogspot and therefore my Youtube videos. (Youtube channel listed also). I believe my blog should be able to stand out without giving handouts to corporations.

    We are a bunch of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your website offered us with valuable information to work on. You’ve done a formidable process and our whole community will likely be grateful to you.

    Can any please tell me whether I can earn from making blogs on Google blogger or not..
    IfI earn where it will be shown to me and how can I withdraw them

    1. Toni Roman

      I never made a penny from Blogger or Blogspot — not from the affiliates nor from Google AdSense. In fact Google AdSense has never paid me one cent. My first blog was with Blogger and they deleted the site and never gave a reason and I know for a fact that I violated no rules. Years later, I went back and the earn money features seemed to have been removed and if they were still there, they were impossible to find and the editing had gotten harder.

      At least that was my horrible experience.

  27. Chanel Auer

    Yes, it is important for the user to see the desktop version and quickly recognize the site/product on a mobile device. however, not all full website looks nice on a mobile device. Therefore, colors, fonts, images and icons used in an desktop version is very important to allow that consistency which will flows in a mobile device environment. When designing for a mobile web, designer should always understand that user behave differently on the mobile device compare to a desktop version. Not just literally ripoff from the desktop and put it in a mobile web environment. I guess that is why some responsive web works and some not.Probably an option to toggle between view desktop version might just help some users. And I personally find it unnecessarily. If it is so much pain in the ass why dun you just view it on the desktop? If the user is not able to recognize or find a particular button on the mobile compared to the desktop, probably something is wrong with the UI or maybe its a user problem.Most of the above responsive web design are well thought and definitely understands the behavior of user in mobile browsing environment.

  28. Richard Conover

    Yes good post indeed. I use Blogger, WordPress, Tumblr, and Blog.com. Not a blog site proper but another good one for SEO reasons is Google.sites. Just signed up for Livejournal but didn’t like how they limit the length of you user name / blog URL. One of the sites I’m trying to write blogs for is http://www.houseforsaleincalgary.ca... Too long for Livejournal.

    Is wordpress a good blog site for teenagers?

    I just started having a pressing urge to start one. I want to express my thoughts about whatever topic that’s bouncing around in my head but still make it relatable to the general public. I’m fine with my blog being with adult ones but I would also like some good teen blogs to read as well. I would also like to get noticed (in the future, also by college administrators). Is wordpress a good place to start? If not, is there any other teen-friendly blog sites that I might be interested in?

    *wordpress user comments would be greatly appreciated (but any opinion is welcomed)

    WordPress is good, but Blogger is even better. Not only is it free, but no unwanted Advertising either. More flexibility also. I’ve tried both and definitely find Blogger a better place to do online blogging. Thanks!

  35. Chirag (Plorez)

    My favorite is Tumblr and WordPress… They have wonderful graphics and the admin dashboard is much more better. Though i have a blog on every blog you mentioned. I prefer Tumblr the most.

    Thanks for the Article.

  37. Gil

    Hey it would be great if this list could also include our new service – http://notelr.com – which let’s users create a free blog, plus (if they’d like) it has widgets which let them earn money from it by showcasing services and products that they would write about in their posts anyway… The interface is the easiest way to start a blog in seconds! Plus its completely free!
