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

blogging.

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

everywhere.
