Guys – I need help. I want to make a website, but I have no clue where to start. Since it’ll mainly be a blog, I don’t mind using a blogging platform that can look professional…but which one? Here’s what I’ve researched thus far:
- WordPress – The pros: I already have my blog here, and I’m comfortable with it. The layouts are quite lovely, and clean looking (I love the one I currently have). The cons: If I want to use my own domain name, I have to pay. If I want to edit any sort of HTML/CSS, I have to pay.
- Tumblr – The pros: I already have a Tumblr site, and like the designs as well. You can add a custom URL and edit HTML for free. The cons: Despite being comfortable with it, it’s still a bit confusing to me (perhaps because of its simplicity?) Now that they’ve added commenting, it’s a bit better, but will people go to Tumblr as much as, say, WordPress? Is it preferable?
- Blogger – Stop laughing. Pros: I’ve used Blogger the longest and am, by far, the most comfortable with it. Custom URL and HTML/CSS editing is free. Cons: The layouts? Not as pretty. They look clunky at times.
Those are my options so far. I don’t mind paying, I just want to make sure it’s worth it. Which do you think is best? Do you have any other suggestions? Any advice? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
