    The Right Blogging Platform For Your Needs

    Choosing which blogging platform to use is one of the
    most important decisions that you can make as a
    blogger. The right platform can make blogging a
    breeze, and the wrong platform can make blogging a
    chore. Because the program that you use to blog with is
    such a powerful part of your blogging experience, it is
    well worth putting in the time to find a platform that
    provides your ideal balance between a user-friendly
    interface and a flexible framework that allows you to
    make your blog look and feel unique. Finding the right
    platform isn't always easy, but with a little bit of
    contemplation and a little bit of research, you will be on
    your way to finding the perfect blogging platform.

    Deciding what your priorities are in terms of ease of use
    versus customization. Most highly customizable
    blogging platforms, like moveable type, are a bit more
    difficult to use than very automated platforms like
    wordpress. If you are new to blogs and to internet
    technology, you might want to sacrifice the ability to
    create a custom background design or to integrate a
    unique font into your template in order to find a
    program that will be easy for you to use. On the other
    hand, if you are a veteran web designer with knowledge
    of html or javascript, you will probably find the
    limitations of a user-friendly platform to be frustrating.

    There is no such thing as a blogging platform that is
    objectively the best platform, because every blogger has
    unique needs. The blogging movement is very much
    about individuality, so it makes plenty of sense that
    there would be many different platforms available that
    are designed to meet the needs of different kinds of
    individuals undertaking different kinds of projects. This
    diversity is a good thing, because it means that you will
    almost certainly be able to find a program that suits
    your level of technical aptitude.

    However, the fact that no two bloggers need the same
    thing from a blogging platform can make your search
    for the right platform a bit tricky. When you are reading
    reviews of different platforms, try to keep your
    priorities in mind and do your best to take into account
    the position that the reviewer is coming from. For
    example, a negative review written by an accomplished
    software designer who complains that a popular
    platform is too limited may tell you that the platform in
    question is ideal for a beginning blogger. There is no
    such thing as the perfect platform for everybody, so
    instead of looking for the "best" platform, look for the
    best platform for your specific criteria.

    I like wordpress because of the number of plugns and simplicity.

    You can also use blogger but with your own domain name so it has less of a chance to get deleted.

    I also have a coach who finds alternative blogging platforms as well like terapad.
