These days blogs are turning into a must have for online entrepreneurs, writers, politicians and what not.

People use blogs because they are so easy to maintain and share ideas with everyone. Also, blogging has become as a job for many people since they are making a fortune from it.

Wouldn’t be the best job in the world sharing your ideas while traveling and getting paid for it?

You have come to the right place.

I can guarantee you that this is the best guide to open a Blogspot blog.

Let’s dive into with some more techie stuff.

It’s true that these days exist many blogging platforms that it’s hard to choose from.

I would suggest for anyone that is new to blogging, first to create a blog on blogspot platform.

You may ask why?

  • It is the fastest and the simplest way to open a blog. You don’t have to be a geek or to wait hours.
  • Blogspot is a Google Product. Which means that you don’t have to take care of the speed of your website. The security of it. Also, it might have better results on search engines.
  • The last one but the most important. It’s free. You don’t have to pay a cent for that.

I would suggest for everyone that it’s just starting blogging to chose blogspot platform. It’s true that you won’t have much freedom like in WordPress. However, once you have some trusted readers. You see that your blog is going well. Moving to another platform it’s a great choice. I like blogspot because it allows you to move all of your entire site to any other blogging platform without losing nothing. To many great bloggers their first home was blogspot.
