Everybody is talking about blogging. What is it all about? It's like having some sort of diary or journal online. You tell the world about anything you want to talk about. It might be an article, opinions, a short video or perhaps promoting your products.
The great thing about blogs is that you are adding fresh content on a regular basis which Google loves. This is good because traffic to your blog is your lifeblood to be successful on-line.

There are two blogging platforms to choose from, WordPress and Blogger. So, which one is best?

o Blogger - The great thing here is that it is simple to set up, just follow the prompts. This is perfect for someone brand new. It is hosted by Google themselves and is free to set up.
The only problem is that you are not in control. Blogger can shut your blog down, so all that work you've done to create your blog has been lost forever! So in a nutshell the content is not yours.

o WordPress - This is not free, you will need a hosting account. Beginners have been known to have trouble setting up a WordPress blog with the confusion of plug-ins and widgets. A possible solution could be to outsource it which is fairly cheap to do.
With this type of blog there is no chance of you losing all your content. You are in control. The blog is hosted on your server and there is no fear of losing anything.

o Conclusion - If you are planning to be serious in your business, WordPress would be the one to go for. Remember if you want more control this is the option to take. However if you are a complete beginner you may decide to start on Blogger.
So there you have it two platforms. You can either choose the nice and easy, no complications or more control. The choice is yours.
