    Picking The Best Free Blogging Site

    Choosing a free blogging site can feel overwhelming
    because there are so many options. There are several
    large free blog-hosting sites that dominate the
    blogosphere, but there are also smaller sites. Whether
    you decide to join up with an established site like
    blogger or whether you choose to sign on with a
    relatively new venture depends on what your priorities
    are.

    Reliability is perhaps the best reason to opt for a large
    and well known free blogging site. When you choose to
    have an established brand host your blog, you can feel
    secure that your blog will not crash often and will not
    disappear in the middle of the night. A company that
    has been around for a while is likely to have the
    resources to make sure that its clients aren't
    unpleasantly surprised by any technical glitches.
    However, many bloggers decide that this isn't enough
    of a selling point. The bloggers who choose to go with
    smaller, newer blog hosting sites do so for a variety of
    reasons, but perhaps the number one advantage is a
    fairly abstract one. Bloggers tend to relish the fact that
    the internet is a place where the underdog has a strong
    chance of success, and by choosing to have a small
    company as a blog host, a blogger is casting his or her
    vote for David against Goliath.

    By free blogging sites, do you mean internet companies like blogger and wordpress.com ? I wanted to blog, I searched, so I found them. I used them simultaneously to feel what works best for me. I found you have more leeway to edit your template in blogger but, all-in-all, wordpress was more user-friendly, especially for a newbie like me.

    I also like blogger as well, but the best by far in my opinion has to be blogcharm, it pays you via paypal every time your blog is seen and not clicked.

    Found this on Blogcharm:

    "On member blogs the top thinbar will contain text ads where members will share 50% of the inventory and revenues generated from them. This will be a mixture of paid ads where members get paid each time their blog is seen and not just when somebody clicks on an advertisement which works much differently than programs like AdSense. Each time your blog is seen you get paid!!"

    Pretty neat idea.

    I love to use tumblr too. I've been on using tumblr since 2008, using that site is so much easy to use. You can re-blog easily and get the clicks easily too. :)
