    • Thanks Ryan. Same here. There’s no blogging platform better than WordPress. Exactly! I’ve almost used all the free widgets for this blog.


    • Yes it is. I wrote this for those who are not yet familiar of WordPress but wants to get published online or to those business owners who are just testing the waters on how a real website actually feels like without wasting money. Thank you for sharing! 🙂


  1. I would agree and also not agree here. If you simply want to have a place to share your thoughts, a free wordpress blog is great. However if you are someone who has specific goals in mind with blogging such as collaborations and montetization, you really just need to start out buying your own domain. Otherwise you’ll have to spend a lot of time migrating content over, which is no fun.
