Most of the people love sharing their thoughts through social network sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, but still the serious people want to do the same through blogs so that they can build a community of people who love their ideas and thoughts. The blogging platforms are easy to use, and one who doesn’t know the much technical can access them. However, a little knowledge of coding can help you in making an awesome plan for your blog.
Here, we bring you the two most popular blogging sites.
WordPress: For iOS and Android Devices
WordPress is the best platform for blogging with its simple and user-friendly interface. The popular blogs like Mashable, use this content management system. If you have no problem using a sub domain for blogging like example.wordpress.com, you can do it for free by registering the name of your blog on wordpress.com. And if you want to use it with a top-level domain, such as example.com then there are two options available for this:
- Register the required Domain Name from Domain registrars and buy a hosting from any hosting companies. After which you can install the WordPress to begin.
- Register a Domain Name from WordPress itself and buy the VIP hosting of WordPress to start.
Now for blogging through your iOS devices, you will have to install the WordPress App from the Apple App Store and for Android devices you can download and install the same from the Google Play Store. However, there is no WordPress App for Windows Phone and tablets. For Windows PCs & laptops, a dedicated WordPress App is available though.
Blogger: For Android and iOS
Blogger is the second most popular blogging platform available. One of the best features about Blogger is that it never crashes and even your blog enjoys a great amount of traffic. It can handle all of it for you. For a start, in blogger, you have to register a sub domain like example.blogger.com And if you want, you can change it to a custom domain like example.com by hosting the blog at Blogger.com itself. With Blogger, one can directly apply to Google Adsense.
To get the blogger App on your iOS device, you just need to visit the Apple App Store and the Android App can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. After which you can access Blogger on the go as well.
