Hosting a blog is a great way to organise thoughts and ideas on any topic. In fact, they are one of the most popular websites these days. Whereas in the past webmasters turned to static HTML websites, many now find they can get better functionality from a blog.
If you’re looking to create your own blog on a web host, first you need to pick a platform. The most popular by far is WordPress. It is easy-to-use and can be customised with thousands of plug-ins and themes.
You will also need a domain. For a new webmaster, blogging platforms can be hard to set up. Thankfully, many hosts these days offer automated installation of WordPress and other popular content management systems (CMS’s).
Free blog hosting options are available, but not recommended. Paid domain hosting is needed to look professional.
