How To Start Your Own Dot Com The Easy Way!

I have always told myself that I would dedicate this site to sharing informations to those who would also want to learn to blog and at the same time earn from what they write about. So I want to take this post as one which would help those people who would want to have a blog site of their own. This article is a basic to starting your blog, so let's get started with blog hosts.

Blogger.com

If you don't have a budget to have your blog hosted on a paid web host then blogger.com is for you. All you need to have is an account to Gmail.com and you can use that account to sign in and get started with your blog to this host. I started blogging using this host because it is owned by Google, Inc. itself and it has been very easy to link your blog to Google Adsense, one of the provider of ads which is a very good way to monetize your blog. What I also liked about this blog host is its easy way of editing the layout as well as the content of your site. The setback of this host is that it has less templates to chose from but templates can be downloaded and it could be uploaded to be your template on blogger.

Worpress.com

Another good host of a blog is wordpress.com. I have been reading a lot of positive revious from this blog host. Whats good about this host is that you can easily migrate your blogger posts to this one. I have tried doing this and indeed it was very easy. There are lots of templates to choose from this host and these templates are said to be more professional looking than the templates offered in blogger.com. What I find difficult in this host is the not so user friendly customization of its layout. I prefer costumization in blogger as it is much more easier and user friendly. Another good thing about wordpress is when a user creates a comment to a certain blog, it automatically creates a backlink to the commentor's website/blogsite.

LiveJournal.com

Aside from providing a blog program for its members, LiveJournal is also a social networking site where every user is provided with a list of friends to a certain members account. That is a very good way to socialize and interact with other bloggers.

Typepad.com

I heard this is also a good host and it also a site where the blogs are optimized for search. I checked the site and they offer a 14-day trial which is also a good thing. Big news companies use this site to host their weblogs.

There are still lots of blog hosts out there but these are just a few of the known hosts which you can start to write about the events of your life, opinions, journeys and adventures as well as the news you love to talk about. You can also start forums about the topics you want to talk about using this blog hosts. Note that even these hosts can give you a free account. They also have paid accounts which gives you a more advanced features that would make your blogging experience more enjoyable. It is up to you if you want to upgrade. The good thing about blogging is the oppurtunity of earning. Maybe when that time comes, you can go for paid accounts to the hosts that I mentioned or even have a dot com of your to be provided by web hosting companies. Well tackle those ones in the proper time and forum.
