Re: What's the best blog hosting site??

Mm...but I find Wordpress difficult to use compared to other free sites. More effort to do certain things like arrange the words & pics...

If juz words without pics...then I guess Wordpress would be ok.

Agree.

Besides if you have your own website you can actually customise the theme.

Re: What's the best blog hosting site??

if you are a serious blogger, i strongly recommend you to stay away from such free blog hosting site for following reasons:
* the given domain name belongs to the hoster, so if they ban your account (can be various reasons, even just because someone envy and lodge report against you frequently), then not just you lost all blog contents and worst still your readers cannot reach you any more (because you don't have own domain name...)

so the better way to blog nowadays without paying for money for blogging is through following steps:
1. first to get a your free domain name (you become the owner). For example, you can get 2 free domain name from this registrar now on the spot!
2. sign up a good free webhosting to host your blog. Bloggers love this free 100GB bandwidth hosting: www.00webhost.com
3. upload/install blog software into your web hosting and all set to go. The most famous blog software is wordpress which you can download from www.wordpress.org

i assume you are using xxx.wordpress.com for your existing blog site, right? that domain name belongs to the wordpress.com thus cannot be used/moved to any place else.

so to get rid of this kind of 'domain binding' problem for the rest of your life, you should go get free domain name first (they are free, and they are free to go with you regardless where you blog hosting in, so why not use them). Click here to get your free domain name first.

After getting a free domain name, you can turn to this free 100GB bandwidth web hosting now, when signing up, choose ' I want to host my domain name' and fill in the free domain name you just got.

Next, after you got approved by the web hosting, you will come to it control page where you should find an column, namely: Name Server Details which display 2 url begins with ns.xxx.com. You need to copy these 2 url address back to your free domain name's Manage DNS settings. After that setting is done, your free domain name is 'live' as it is links now to the free web hosting server at where your website/blog contents reside in.

Ok, at this point the basic configuration is done. You can now start building blog site. To make things easy, you can use the webhosting's 'Web Builder' function to set up your blog site in few minutes. It is extreme easy to use, and you have over 500 template/web design to choose from. (no doubt this is better than free blog hosting site).

Should you not prefer to use the provided Web Builder feature, you can also DIY by downloading free blog software, namely the most famouse Wordpress software from wordpress.org. Upload this software and install it onto your webhosting, by then you can secure a 100% full control rights of your blog site (contents, design change, modify codes, add advertising, etc)
