What Blogging Platform Are You Using?

Blogger or WordPress? These are the two biggest blogging platform online. Both have their own pros and cons. Until this time, arguments exist as to which blogging platform is better. When I was just starting in blogging, I was using Blogger. It was easy to set up and you can start right away. However, I wanted to learn WordPress because I am preparing for the time that I may be assigned in managing the website of our office (government). I have learned that Wordpress is the acceptable platform for government websites. I was able to set up my site after purchasing a domain and hosting package. It was difficult at first considering that I am not an IT, but with the help of my Facebook friends, and with some online videos as a guide, I have successfully set up my site and started writing. How about you my friends, what blogging platform do you prefer to use?

@ARIES1973 I am more used to interaction from people. Just writing and posting it and maybe someone coming along and reading it/leaving a comment just didn't work for me.

@JolietJake Well, probably at first, we can experience like being alone. But finding the right strategy and blogging tools, we could be able to set up a forum so we can interact with each other.

@Tracy04 - Actually, blogging is just like an online diary. We can write the things that do for the day. Well, anyway we can also write regarding any topic here in myLot. Thank you for dropping by.

@Tracy04 I need to start all over again. My first attempt was unsuccessful. That was several years ago. The reason I had to stop because I found a better option. So I set aside blogging. When I decided to come back, I realized that there were previous tasks necessary for blogging that I was doing wrong. So I deleted all my previous accounts and started again. I hope I can make it this time.

I use Blogger and Wordpress.com (not .org). Blogger is easy to use (no need to install plugins) but Wordpress.com is more SECURE and mobile-friendly.

@Nawsheen Actually, I have made some considerable amount from other sies that I have. But those are not related to writing or blogging. I am earning from other activities, such as task-based jobs and call reviewing. But I really want to learn the skill of blogging because I believe that this is one f the best ways to have passive income.

That is okay. Writing for other sites is also a good thing to do. You can earn from this activity and at the same time a good way to spend time. Thank you for dropping by!

Yes each has an advantage and disadvantage. It depends on what your blog is about I suppose. It's interesting to see what people write about. Not all are commercialized. I've tried both.

Hi @Bluedoll! As of now, I temporarily set aside my own blog to give more focus on Bitlanders and I am enjoying the site. Bitlanders is also using wordpress platform. It is a good avenue to learn things related to blogging.

@ARIES1973 Your profile link brought me to bitlander's but not your site. I'm not sure if you meant it to do that or not? Never heard of the site until now. Seems interesting! Things? What things?

For blogging I use blogger and love it. It is easy to go into and easy to correct mistakes. I had Worpress once for a web and did not like it and had something else and did not visit my web much. When I do blog I send it to different places so I prefer that.

Blogger and WordPress are both good platforms. Our preferences may vary depending on our needs. With Blogger, we can edit the them that we chose to have as long as we have enough knowledge of HTML. Thank you for dropping by.

I'm new with this online job thing so most of what they could offer is too foreign for me. Willing to learn though. If someone could point to sites like postloop or mylot, it would be very much appreciated.

Hi @Neiltarquin Being in myLot is probably one of the best ways to start. You will learn a lot of things from here. Just drop in your question so that anybody can give you a light on the matter. If you have a question about blogging, then probably you can ask a specific question. I'm sure you won't regret once you learned about the different sites, strategies and other necessary things related to online working. The benefits are great. Have a wonderful day!

Yes, Blogger is a good platform. Choosing a good blogging platform depends on our preferences. One of the reasons why I stopped when I first started was due to lack of time. When I found a good online work, I decided to concentrate on it first so that I would be able to earn some amount.

@jobelbojel - Thanks for dropping by. I also joined some revenue sites but all of them were gone. I lost several hundreds of dollars on some and gain from others. I am concentrating in blogging as of the moment.

I am using Blogger. The reason your government websites might be based on WordPress is that Wordpress is not just a blogging platform. It's actually a CMS platform and that means there are a lot more features in it than blogging.

Hi @thehousewife! Yes, Wordpress is an open-source content management system (CRM) based on PHP and MySQL. It's good to know that you are using blogger. I am still using it with my other sites. But, since I wanted to enhance my knowledge, I decided to learn WordPress which I find very helpful. I am currently submitting a proposal for part time website management work in one of the offices here in our place and hopeful that I could get the contract. Thank you for dropping by.
