Best Free Blog Sites

How often do you check into something, knowing that there will be a price tag, usually at the bottom…

…after the “sell job” is over?  Even when it says FREE, you’re waiting for the catch, and this includes those companies stating that they have the best free blog sites.

Fair enough, but here’s the reality:How do you find the best free blog sites?

  • You want to start a blog
  • You know you will need a website
  • You’re convinced that “nothing in life is free”

If you are considering starting a blog you will need your own website and you will need to decide if you are going to pay for hosting services or if “free” is actually an option.  Let me tell you…it is!

Considering Starting a Blog?

Lets talk about this.

  • First of all, I would suggest that you are already considering starting a blog, if you don’t already have one, which is why you’ve been searching and have landed here.
  • Obviously, you will need “something to put it on”…a website.  Wikipedia notes that a website needs to be hosted on a web server and should have pages with content, text and pictures…and this all goes on the the World Wide Web…the Internet!  And you’re considering joining that world community.

But…no host…no site…no blog.  Let me help.

“Nothing in life is free”…oh, how often we have heard that.  I think one of the quickest questions we have is “How much will it cost?”  The same goes with choosing your web host.  I would suggest that you very carefully check them all out before purchasing.  Make sure that their costs won’t change after the first month or the first year.  Do your homework…you are creating something that is about you but written for those you love and for those you don’t know, around the world.

So are the best free blog sites truly free?

And are they any good?  I’m a big fan of Wealthy Affiliate because of the free websites, training and support that you receive (read my review here).  You can also type “free blog sites”  into Google or your favorite search engine and see which ones rank at the top of the page.  That is going to give you a really good list of websites to check out.

  • But don’t just sign up because they say they are the best and they are free.  Again, do your homework!
  • After all, we as Baby Boomers grew up having to do homework…the old fashioned way…with pen and paper.
  • Don’t change your ways now if that works for you.  I always keep a notepad and my favorite pen beside my laptop.

After you have done your research and have jotted down your questions, drop me a line in the comment section below.  I will do everything I can to help you brainstorm the various hosts and what they have to offer.  If I don’t know the answer I will do everything I can to work with you to find it.

In the “Learn to Blog” tab, you will see an article that also promotes WordPress.

I would strongly recommend checking them out as they are one of the most well-known and well-respected blogging hosts out there.  I have included an article that should help you better understand the value of WordPress.  You can even link to it right here.

All the best to you and please, let me know how I can help with this very important decision.

    Hi Rick, I did some of my homework and found out that Wealthy Affiliate does offer a free option, the starter membership that includes 2 free websites. But also a whole lot of training. Maybe later, like me, some people will find that they want to take this more seriously and decide to invest on their business. What I like about WA is that you can stay as a free member as long as you want. Personally I see a huge benefit in the fact that if I become a premium member I get unlimited hosting. I can then continue to grow my online business and for example offer clients to design and host their websites.

    • Hi Emma and thanks for your great words. The free option at WA is so cool and a great way for anyone to start their own website. And the training is second to none. All the best to you.

  2. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
    But think of if you added some great graphics or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
    site could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
    Awesome blog!

    • Thank you for your kind words. I’m actually just getting ready to start my video training and then hope to get some things up.
