Hi, Do you have a favorite place to blog? If so, why do you like the place? I have tried a few places. I mainly use the automated blog builder at GVO but also use other blogs, like Blogger and now this place, too. Paula

I do like instantblogsubscribers, it's a more discreet way to conduct split-test with the posts.

Kind of checking readers response and so...

I've had a blog in Blogger, but Google banned me becouse I put some links to one of my sites, and in a second all my 298 posts gone for ever!!!
Now I try to maintain blogs in Apsense and Anoox, seems to be OK until now. I should like to try Weebly too, is anybody who use this site?

Self hosted Wordpress blog.

 

Customize it all you want, unlimited plug-ins, and Google can't touch it :)

I'd have to agree with Jerry, I don't write so much but I've had my own self hosted wordpress blog for many years and always been happy with it.

I agree with Jerry as well... I don't run a personal blog ATM (though I am preparing one now) but I do have a few sites running on wordpress themes, magazine style... self-hosted. No issues with customization...etc.

Yup, I concur with using a self-hosted Wordpress site. It takes a little bit of technical knowledge but there are lots of resources to utilize if you're unable to configure a self-hosted Wordpress installation.

I had a Weebly site and they shut it down. I had quite a few banners on my homepage. I had planned to take some down but I didn't get around to it. They shut it down because they called it a money making site. I did have some survey sites on it but I had written blog posts about them I didn't have any of the banners on the homepage. I was using the free version and I had planned on upgrading because I really liked Weebly. I was in another forum and a lady had a Weebly blog and she had affiliate products but she had upgraded. I'm thinking now they shut it down because I was using the free version.

 

If you are doing affiliate marketing I wouldn't recommend using Weebly. Or if you are doing any kind of referral marketing of any kind. I was also reading a fellow bloggers blog who had a site on Weebly and they shut it down. To be on the safe side I wouldn't use them if I were you.

If you are using something on social media as you all posted above - you are always at risk of those companies being shut down.

 

I always tell people TO CONTROL THEIR OWN ENVIRONMENT - so the way to go is to self host and install wordpress, you can

do this even with some cheaper webhosts if your budget is tight. I got so many accounts closed on Blogger, Tumblr, (insert 20 other
services here) - you should only use those social media sites as a backup or to post occasionally on those networks linking back to your

main blog.

Definitely, a self-hosted Wordpress blog.

 

I don't like the lack of control over other hosted blogs.

Will you please define self hosted WordPress blog and tell me how to go about obtaining one? I have only blogged at free spaces before and never had great experiences with it. I want something worth my while.

Having a self-hosted blog is always advantageous than using free blogging platforms like Google's blogger.com or Wordpress.com. There's no big Papa Google dictating what should write and link to.

 

Go to Hostgator or Bluehost, sign-up for a low cost hosting account, install wordpress blogging software, install a theme (usually ranging from $20 to $50), and you're set. You can have your very own blog that you control. 

 

I have several blogs hosted in Google, in Hostgator, and Bluehost. They are good hosts, and the blogs are up most of the time (99% uptime guarantee). 

 

The only problem I had with self-hosted blogs like those I have in Hostgator and Bluehost is that, the process of creating a blog with them is not easily duplicated in network marketing business. I am a network marketing leader.

 

With my recent experience with Hostgator, I have gone through the "eye of the needle" before my newly opened account with them was activated. They have required me to verify my ownership of the credit card I used in paying them, by having me call using my phone Philippines to USA!

 

Plus, after activating my account, when I was about to install a theme, I found out that they have removed the option of looking for a free theme to start with. The link inside the back office is linked to "premium themes" only which you have to pay money again.

 

Realizing that the members of my team will have a very hard time going through the same process Hostgator have pushed me through, I looked for a blogging platform that is suited for network marketers. That's where I found Empower Network.

 

Today, I am using EN's blogging platform, and it is the one I recommend for people without having technical background and are in tight budget, to get started blogging with. For as low as $25 per month, you can get started blogging with our Kalatu Basic Blogging Platform and you will be provided with free themes that are as good as those paid themes recommended inside Hostgator.

 

Plus, there's an added plugin in Kalatu that guides new bloggers in content creation. It's called the "21 Day Blogging Challenge" plugin. With that plugin, all you have to do is answer some leading questions asked by the plugin, and VOILA! your content is created.

 

All blogging platform serve the same purpose of helping us express ourselves online. But not all blogging platforms are created equal. Some are created better than the others. ;)

I have a Wordpress blog that I never seem to use. I realize how effective a blog can be but for some invalid reason I always seem to push the blog to the back burner. I'm refining my schedule and you can believe me that the Wordpress blog is coming back to a more important position

It still amazes me how many people think they can make money using a free blog platform, only to wonder why they get terminated after so much work and all that stress and frustration to save less than $1.50 a MONTH.

 

If you are into making money online and can't afford the $1.50 a month, I heard that McDonalds is hiring.

I gotta go the self hosted Wordpress route. 

 

Although, Weebly's templates and features aren't bad.

 

Wordpress has just always been so professional but I

would not suggest it to one that's faint of heart.

 

It has a tech learning curve that can easily frustrate.

Like anything else in life, that depends a lot on who you know. Only in Internet Marketing it's even better, with everyone who has experience usually looking for more friends to help.

I have to agree with those who recommend self hosted Wordpress. Years ago you would need to upload files and install Worpress manually, but today most major web hosts provide apps and support to help you get Wordpress installed in just a few minutes. A Wordpress blog is safe and yours to keep!
