Have you been thinking about starting a blog, but don’t have any idea where to start? Setting up a blog seems really overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Once you’ve figured out what you want your blog to be about, you just need to pick the best site to host your blog. These three sites are the best blogging ones and they happen to be free. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get blogging!


Backed by Google, Blogger is so easy to start using and it takes you step-by-step through creating your site. You’ll be able to access analytic tools, to help you find your audience.


Brought to you by the people who created Twitter, Medium is great if you’re just starting out and like text over visuals. The platform has a storytelling feel which is perfect if you’re looking to create longer blog posts.


One of the most versatile apps is Penzu and there are three types of journals you can choose between, which means you’re bound to find one that meets your goals. There’s a Daily Diary that lets you write anytime, anywhere, an Expressive Journal that keeps your thoughts private, and a Travel Journal that lets you put in photos and tags.
