If you’re brand new to the blogging world, you can sign up for a SUPER SIMPLE, FREE blog via Blogger or WordPress.com. For more advanced-thinking bloggers, you can move on to WordPress.org – but Blogger and WordPress.com are totally FINE for beginners. If you are thinking BIGGER you can head for the WordPress.org route, but don’t feel you have to mess with domain names, hosts and WordPress.org to start with.

Get started and then you can always rethink your platform once you have found your feet.
