Choosing a good Blogging Platform-
As i have discussed,Choosing a good blogging platform has become a “Dilemma” to bloggers,but this is not a problem at all.WordPress and Blogger are considered to be the best blogging platforms and I have used both of these platforms.There is nothing to talk about it,as everyone say WordPress is the best platform ever and i’m a proud user of it,but if you are a newbie to blogging you can always go with Google’s Blogger as its free to use and it needs only a domain(At default it comes with a sub-domain) whereas WordPress requires hosting which makes it more costlier and adds up to the “Blogging Expenses”.Take a look at the comparison between these two platforms.
- Free sub domain and hosting.
- Google gives more importance to blogger.
- Easy to use.
- Google account can be used to sign in.
- Google prefers Blogger results at top of the search results and its easy to get Adsense approved.
- impressive developer support.
- Wide range of plug-ins and themes.
- Better security and SEO when compared with blogger.
- Has more post features than blogger.
- Post formats can be decided and its easy to code a template using its editor.
You can decide the best suitable one among them,it depends on your needs and budget.Now if you have decided your platform we can continue to the next section.
Why Blogging is Considered as a Job/Career-
I have mentioned that you can earn money through your blog,but how?So this section is to clear your doubts about earning money through your blog.I had mentioned about Adsense in the discussion of platforms given above,So what is Adsense?
Adsense-Its an advertising service by Google which pays you every time when a visitor clicks on a ad displayed on your site.There are many other advertising services,but Adsense is the best as its powered by Google.This is considered as the best service because it pays the highest possible amount to every click and one of the best thing in it is that this service displays the ads which are related to your content or the niche on which you post.So its totally safe and trust able.But getting an Adsense approval is a tough thing.
Now you are thorough with all the elements of blogging and i have tried my level best to clear all of your confusion,now lets have a look at the last section which is really important only for the people who would like to adapt blogging as their career.
Things to Be Avoided In Blogging-
