2016 is here! That means we have a whole year when we can make blogging goals, more connections, strengthen the ones we have and keep fine tuning our blogging. Am I right? But first. . .
As promised, we have opened our doors to more members over at the Blog-A-rhythm group on Facebook! So head over there and let us know if you are keen to join us.
*Please note membership is moderated and we may take a few days to approve your request.
This week’s Tip:
This one’s more of a question, really, since many bloggers I know keep asking this question and it’s a loaded one, too!
Which is better? Blogger or WordPress?
Now, whether you have a blog on WordPress or Blogger or are self-hosted, it’s important to ask yourself another question: What is the purpose behind writing your blog?
To put it very simply here’s the deal:
- Opt for blogger and blogspot.com (and its variants) if your aim is to blog mainly as a journal, write as a hobby or to write and showcase your talents in your niche.
- Go for a custom domain and masking blogspot.com if you want to add a professional touch to the website. Be advised that you don’t get any add-ons as such.
- Opt for WordPress.com if you want some variety in terms of themes, templates, widgets and layouts. This is free much like blogspot.com
- Opt for self-hosted if you want to monetise your blog, get a fully professional looking website and build a unique brand image.
*Note: There are obviously many blogs/platforms out there who successfully defy everything listed above and do wonderfully, but these 4 points are largely true in the blogging space 🙂
