    I have many people interested in the topic I want to start blogging about but don't know which platform to choose. I thinking about launching a YouTube channel and recording my tips (which is definitely one the best options), but I also want to make it textual, so that people can read my articles and use them as guidance. So should I spend some time and effort on building my own website or just simply relying on WordPress and social media posts? Thanks in advance for your ideas!

    I don't think Facebook works well for blogging. That's my biased opinion!

    Build your YouTube channel and blog, embed your videos and add articles, best of both worlds. Post your blog pages to social media to get traffic

    Building your own website on WordPress CMS will give you lots of options to expand in the future.

    If you are looking to monetize your efforts in future, do the youtube channel with a dedicated website for text. Not doing a website will hamper your earnings in future considerably.

    Use every platform available to you. There are several advantages of doing it this way. Each platform allows you to create unique content and interact with people in a unique way. Videos are different than tweets which are different from facebook pages which are all different from a blog. Everything can point back to your blog, and your videos can be posted there, but each platform is it's own marketing platform. Build a following on Facebook, and on Youtube. Use your blog as a method for funneling all of that traffic together, to capture emails, and create a platform for you to collect all of your content in all forms in order to share with more people.
