Blogging Platforms

I love WordPress and since discovering it 10 years ago have never used anything else.  There are so many themes available that your blog/website can look exactly how you envisage it. To use WordPress you need to buy a domain name and hosting.

There are free blogging platforms. For these you don't require hosting but you will not have your own unique domain name.

These are:

Hosting and Domain

I recommend Siteground to get both your domain name and your hosting. I personally haven't used them but have seen a number of bloggers raving about them recently.
