Things to Remember:
Nothing is FREE in the world (Except this helpful guide which you are reading right now)–
You may see different websites saying there platform is free for blogging. Yes, they are not completely wrong. But, not completely right too. Confused? Ah! Let us explain. These platforms provide you freedom to spread your words on the web. But, you won’t get a personal blog name without paying a penny. It means you won’t get a domain name of your choice. All you will get from these sites is a ‘Sub-domain’. You need example? Here it is:
Suppose you are going to build a blog named “MYBLOG” but when you register on these sites you will get myblog.blogspot.com, myblog.wordpress.com or something like that.
