Blogging is Like Eating.
I say that because blogging is like eating a box of Pringles. Like what their ad says, “Once you pop, you cannot stop.” Blogging has taken over the world wide web as the most single effective tool of people, regardless of station, to communicate and let their voices be heard. A blog, which is a shortened term for web blog, is an online journal which can be used for multiple reasons – personal use, just an online log of activities, a photo journal, and lately, since we are right in the smack of political elections where I live, political blogs.
With that being said, while there are many free blogging services out there, getting cheap domain names and affordable dedicated hosting are incredulously easy, even for a non-techie geek like me. What you need to look out for though is that cheap (or affordable) web hosting doesn’t really equate to quality. Make sure that the web host you choose has 99.99% up time all the time and that whenever problems will arise, customer and tech support is easy to deal with, and quick to respond. I read a very good Bluehost Review just the other day – and I am thankful I went my instinct and went with them to host all my blogs!
