Just Blogging for Sake? You don’t want to indulge in extensive blogging? and doing just for time pass and relaxation? Again Blogger is right choice for you! As its free to use and no programming language is required to operate blogger its the best platform for layman use.There are many bloggers who just do blogging for sake of themselves.Some maintain dairies too on their blog! haven’t visited one? Just Google It  😀

    Good overview! I use self-hosted WordPress personally as it is very flexible and allows me to do whatever I want. Basically I Have full control and ownership unlike the hosted platforms.

      True! If you are using Wordpress (self hosted) then you already are on advantage !

    Awesome article Dude. Actually the Free Blogger platform is not a match to the self hosted wordpress blogging platform.

    But for newbies, it is highly recommended for them to go for the free Blogger platform, as it is easy to adapt to.

    Thanks for the article.
