Free Blog Sites


This post is about where and which platforms to choose for your blogging purpose and need.


Which blogging platforms you decide upon also depends on your purpose, interest or how you prefer to blog. Below includes established sites that offer FREE blog or microblog services that are worth considering. Please note that some blogging platforms are more suited or popular for certain purposes, therefore the categorisation below. I hope and tend not to consider platforms that may not be stable or lasting. 


Blogger may be the only or few platforms that has a trusted advertising option which may be included easier than others.




Social networking as a form of microblogging is also considered and included below. Since popularity is the name of the game especially for social networking sites, I have included some for charts comparisons.
