Your Blog Is As Good As Its Platform

By Craig Andrews

Can the blogging platform you use actually make your blog better? Are there that many different platforms, that it makes a difference to which one you use? Yes, I think there is.

There are many platforms for bloggers to use today. Most of them are free and some charge a small fee. While the free platforms are more popular because they are, well, free, they are also likely to have less features than the fee based platforms.

That is where WordPress comes in. In case you don't know WordPress is, it is probably the best blogging platform available, in my opinion, at this time. And did I tell you that is totally free. WordPress can do this because it is an open source project, a project that is worked on by thousands of people around the world.

WordPress can be either set up on its own domain or you can get a free WordPress blog set up at Although the last option makes using WordPress totally free, I would advise setting up WordPress on its own domain. If you are not of the tech type, then check out and there are ways to get your WordPress blog loaded to your web host for you for free.

Besides being free, there are many other features that make WordPress great. One is the awesome support and community that is built around WordPress. has a huge help section under the Docs heading. If you cannot find your answer here, then you can most likely find the answer in the forums.

Another great feature is that there are tons of free themes or designs that you can use with your WordPress blog. They differ in colors, how many columns there are and almost anything else you can imagine can be found for your blogs theme. A quick search on Google for "free WordPress themes" will give you thousands to chose from.

Probably the best feature about WordPress is its plug-ins. Plug-ins are tools that extend the functionality of WordPress and offer custom functions and features so that each user can tailor their site to their specific needs. A list of Plug-ins can be found under the Extend heading at the website.

I hope this article has helped you learn about WordPress and the advantages of using and in return makes your blog better.
