It’s not a secret that we are huge WordPress secrets for blogging, especially since we have been offerring SEO blog templates for WordPress for years. If you are an expert you already know that WordPress has Meta tags and other built in amazing tools for SEO. You know that WordPress.org offers the MU (Multi-User), and the blogging software for FREE. Which always catapults the most feature rich blogging tool in to being #1.
So Why is WordPress.com the best blogging platform? Because it helps you setup a blog on your own domain for custom hosting within minutes and only $15/year (yes that is a year), DID WE MENTION INCLUDING THE DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION? YES, THAT IS TRUE.
Some of us are not technical, and so the fact that WordPress.com hosts our free blogs is great, but we really want to be professional and blogging on our own domain allows us all to do that. So the fact that it is super easy is another best feature. Folks, I tried and spent hours on TypePad the (self proclaimed professional blog), it stinks. I was willing to pay the $149/year (thank god they did not charge my credit card), but it was too rigid, templates were not professional enough, and the SEO was weak. I expected so much more, but I would have just settled for an easy interface, but they simply made things hard for me to navigate. Also TYPEPAD fees are non-refundable, so DO NOT BUY or Pay full in advance they do not prorate your monthly payments. After the 14 day trial, you are literally hosed, stuck with their weaker blogging system.
Blogger and Blogspot are easy and Ok, they also allow domain hosting, for free I think. Blogger blogging platform, is owned by Google, so it’s not that bad, nothing Google does is bad. It simply does not have the features and customization that WordPress.com blogging has.
Anyway, It’s taken me a few days to blog about this topic as I have been busy blogging about my wife’s book Mommy’s Little Money$Maker, an Inspiration Guide for Mom’s to start a business or earn a part time income. Check it out at MomBite.com, she has been blogging their every day. She plans to provide a daily MomBite, a featured business owned and started by a Mom that can help to inspire other Mom’s. Enjoy and don’t be afraid to pass it on to other Mom’s. Thanks!
