How to Choose The Right Blogging Platform

One of the most important decisions is choosing which blogging platform to use, as a blogger. The wrong platform can make blogging a chore but the right platform can make blogging a breeze. Because the program that you use to blog with is such a powerful part of your blogging experience, it is well worth putting in the time to find a platform that allows you to make your blog look and feel unique. Finding the right platform isn’t always easy, but with a little bit of research, you will be on your way to finding the perfect blogging platform.

Every blogger has unique needs. So there is no such thing as a blogging platform that is objectively the best platform. The blogging movement is very much about individuality. So it makes plenty of sense that there would be lots of different platforms available. Because it means that you will almost certainly be able to find a program that suits your level of technical aptitude this diversity is a great thing.

Personally, I use WordPress because it is so flexibly and there is always a plugin for whatever you need. If you don’t want to use WordPress, another popular option is Blogger. I’d strongly recommend that whichever platform you choose, you opt for a self-hosted package.

Anyway, the fact that no two bloggers need the same thing from a blogging platform can make your search for the right platform a bit tricky. Try to keep your priorities in mind and do your best to take into account the position that the reviewer is coming from, when you are reading reviews of different platforms. A negative review written by an accomplished software designer, who complains that a popular platform is too limited, can tell you that the platform in question is ideal for a beginning blogger. Look for the best platform for your specific criteria.

There is no such thing as the perfect platform for everybody.
