The Best Platform To Create A Blog
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Everybody wants to have a blog. This is true, blogging is what anyone can do and almost all of us are doing it on our social media profiles. Social media is not just a networking platform, but many people use it as a blog where they share views, share media files and do a lot of other stuff that conventional websites don't allow them to. There are many platforms for blog and website development that you can use. Whether you are hiring a website development company or you are developing it yourself, here are some of the top platforms that you can use.

WordPress

This might be the best platform to build elegant, responsive and complex websites and blogs. People with no or very little knowledge of coding, HTML and scripts can use this platform to build their own blogs. However if you hire a website designing and development company, you can have a blog that will be easy to use not only for yourself, but for your users as well. WordPress allows all kinds of flexibilities to its user. It also allows you to have guest blogging features and can maintain unlimited data.

Up until 2014, WordPress currently has more than 60 million users worldwide, 1 in 5 websites is developed on this platform making it the most commonly used platform in the world. WordPress is free to use, the only thing you will be paying for is the domain name and web hosting. This is the best platform to start a blog with minimum expenses. WordPress is a complete solution where you can build all kinds of websites including eCommerce websites.

Blogger

Blogger is a free platform from Google where you can host and create your own blog. Although the design feature of it is a bit old fashioned but it is still a great way to start off your own blog. All you need is a Gmail account and you are ready to start blogging. Blogger is recommended only for blogging as it has limited functionality. But the benefit is that you can publish all kinds of content including media files and content in huge quantity. The drawback is that Google owns your blog and the designs are a bit old fashioned now.

The biggest benefit is that you can use the complete service for free if you are okay with the.blogger extension. $10 will remove that extension and your blog will be under your name.

Joomla

Joomla is a CMS platform written in PHP. Many top websites of the world are developed on Joomla. This is the second most used platform after WordPress and offers a lot of flexibility and extensions. On comparison both WordPress and Joomla offer the same features. Up until now there are more than 35 million users worldwide using this platform. The platform is recommended for all kinds of content management websites and blogs.

The only drawback in my opinion is that a layman or someone with little programming knowledge will find it hard to understand the platform.

Drupal

Drupal is an open source platform for website development and web application development. Although not ideal for beginners, this versatile platform is great for developing high quality content management systems and websites of all kinds. Currently 1 million users are using this platform worldwide. Drupal development costs depend totally on the project type and its size. There are many free ad-on and themes available online and a lot of help forums to guide you through the website development process.

Drupal development is a great way to create interactive and dynamic websites. Although it can be used to create static websites and blogs as well, but that is just the tip of the iceberg of capabilities of this platform.

Apart from these platforms, there are many other online sources like Blogger that you can use to develop blogs online and host them for free. For beginners and people with little knowledge of coding, using these sources will be a great way to kick start their blog. After sometime you can move to an expensive theme or a custom website design, but for now, start creating posts with minimum expenses.

I am a professional blogger who loves to write about technology, careers, drupal development, website development, website designing and branding and other topics. I love latest gadgets and like to write about how they are changing our lives.
