I’m trying to find a good blogging site that I can integrate in my site. Blogger seems to have binned the FTP publishing so I can’t use that, and I don’t really want to pay for WordPress’s site integration (unless I’m doing it wrong and it’s free). Are there any other sites or even a way to do it without a site?
I use wordpress, and I find it to be restrictive to the extreme. You have to pay to edit your CSS, and it would take an act of congress if you want to edit the HTML or PHP. Forget about running any adds, it’s not going to happen.
In my opinion, wp is a good test track for blog ideas, you do your basic layout, test your content, and see how fast it moves up the search engine ratings, but I’d have a better place ready to transfer it to once I got it dialed in.
As far as I can see there are no GOOD alternatives as far as sites like wp are concerned, if you’re serious about your blog, and want to exercise the kind of control over it that is needed to make your ideas work, then you need your own domain on a dedicated server.
Well, if I will going to choose in blogger and wordpress, I will definitely choose blogger for being user friendly. It’s not that hard to use it. Am I right? You can easily do what you are trying to do.
wordpress is really easy. everything is laid out for you, you can choose from various themes, update pages, add photos and videos, links, etc. I began using it in school and now I use it for my own personal and professional use. very simple.
