If you are a newbie in blogging, the first challenge you are going to be confronted with is choosing the right platform to start your blog on. There are many platforms available for this very purpose but as you may already know, the two platforms that currently rule – and have for many years – the blogosphere (it’s not in the dictionary!) are Blogspot and WordPress.
While, WordPress is considered superior to Blogspot when speaking in terms of ‘professional blogging’, those superior features that WordPress prides its self in may not be relevant to new bloggers as blogging is a continuous learning process and just like a ladder it is essential to take it one step at a time to allow for you to learn new features and how best to implement them.
In this entry I am going explain to you in details why blogspot is probably the most ideal platform for every beginner in this potentially lucrative way of generating income or whatever purpose you blog for.
