There are many blogging platforms available; some of the free ones are Blogger, Blogspot, and wordpress.com. There are also many paid sites, but the one I’m most familiar with is Typepad.
WordPress.org is considered to be the premium blog platform and is a hosted blog. Here are three benefits to having a WordPress blog:
1) WordPress gives you the ability to work on a post offline. You may also build, edit and post to your blog at anytime, without being connected to the internet. This is different from most blog software applications, which require you to be logged on to the internet.
2) It is easy to use. WordPress functions are code-free thereby allowing you to post easily with icons that are similar to a word processing program. This ease of use allows you to create beautiful, high tech blogs that look and are as complete as full-blows websites.
3) WordPress has an amazing plug-in library that allows users to add features and functions to posts and pages instantly. The plug-in library has been enhanced by programmers and designers who have created their own plug-ins for their specific needs.
WordPress.org allows you to create very attractive blogs that encourage people to visit and stay to read whatever is posted on the site.
