    Using A Free Blogging Web Site

    For first time bloggers, a free blogging web site is a
    great way to get started in the blogosphere. Popular
    blogging web sites like blogger and eponym allow users
    to set up and host a blog without paying any fees at all.
    This encourages people to start blogging, because the
    fact that one of these sites can provide you with all of
    the tools that you need to get your blog up and running
    without spending any money means that you have
    nothing to lose by starting a blog. The fact that it is so
    easy to find a way to blog for free is one of the reasons
    why so many people who have never had any other kind
    of web presence before find themselves drawn to

    By signing up with a free blogging web site, you may
    find it easier to get listed in search engines that you
    would if you were starting your own blog from scratch.
    For example, google runs the free blog hosting site
    blogspot and crawls its pages very often looking for
    updates, so if you have your site hosted by blogspot you
    are almost guaranteed to be listed on google's blog
    search engine. This easy access to search engines can
    take some of the work out of promoting your blog, and
    can help you gain a following with a minimum of
    marketing effort.

    If your blog attracts a large readership, you may want to
    consider moving your site. Many people feel that being
    hosted by a free blogging web site gives a blog a kind of
    amateur flavor that is fine for a new member of the
    blogosphere, but is not appropriate for a high-profile
    blog. Having your own domain can help you make your
    blog feel professional, and finding a company that will
    host your domain is not difficult or expensive. Once
    your blog takes off, you will probably be able to sell
    enough advertising space to be able to afford to buy a
    domain and pay for a hosting package, and still have
    money left over. However, it does not make sense in
    most cases to invest in these glossy luxuries before you
    have a sizable readership.

    Starting your blog on a free blogging web site is a great
    way to build a following before you spend any money
    on your blog. If and when your blog becomes popular
    and you are ready to take the next step and purchase
    your own domain, your readers will follow you to your
    new home. The fact that it is possible to use a free blog
    host like blogspost, blogger, or eponym as a kind of
    incubator for your blog is great news for bloggers

    I think a free blogging website makes life easier for us bloggers, especially the none techie ones. I can't help but wonder why people would fork out a few hard earned bucks and spend extra time and effort for paid blogging sites. Maybe I'm missing something...

    Why would you have to pay so much? All you need is to pay for the hosting of the website.

    I am a newbie, but how can blog sites help generate traffic or increase the pr of my current gambling or adult websites? Will the PR of the blog help my site(is there a nofollow) and do blogs generate any quality traffic?

    blogs get quality traffic if you write quality content to them
