Either way, you are probably in the right place on how you can create your very own blogs. Some of you don’t know where to start and how to build a blog but personally, I tell you that it is pretty simple and easy. All you need to do is to follow clear instructions and processes if you really want to have your own blog. Don’t spoil that passion within just because you don’t know where to begin. 

In this post, I will be sharing some of the powerful hosting sites where you can make your own blog just the way you wanted it to look like. You can also personalize and customize it the way you wanted it to be. I will share with you the mediums on how to begin a blog.

#1. Blogger 

A free weblog publishing tool from Google, I personally use this to my blog and would strongly recommend this hosting site if you want to create your blog. The site is pretty easy to use with less worry since it is hosted by Google. The site is also naïve to work on and easy to put a widget, best for beginners.

#2. Wordpress 

Web software if you want to create beautiful blogs; this hosting site is one of the most popular sites for bloggers since it is very powerful in building SEO. However, the site is not totally free, you need to pay a specific amount or purchase their premium to use all their services.

#3. Joomla 

One of the most popular open-source CMS (Content Management Framework) for web publishing.

#4. Wattpad 

This is an online community for reading and writing. If you are a user, you post anything like an essay, poetry, etc.

#5. Tumblr 

If you want to create a photoblog, then this hosting site will be one of the best sites to start. This is a micro-blogging and social media community where you can post anything.

#6. Hubpages 

Wanted to earn from blogging without doing too much in terms of site construction? Then Hubpages best fits you! They have already the medium, community and the system on how to monetize your blogs. All you need to do is to create good “hubs” that will generate continues traffic.

#7. Wix 

An awesome hosting site where you can freely build your blog and start blogging in no time! They have hundreds of templates for you to choose and at the same time a much elegant blog/website to start with. They are a cloud-based web development platform where you can drop and drag elements to create professional websites. 

#8. Weebly 

I have tried using this site and they have an easy platform for you to create the elements of your blog. In creating a blog for them, all you need to do is to drag elements that you wanted to appear on your blog. Pretty fast and simple!

#9. LiveJournal 

This is a Russia social online community and at the same time service where you can express yourself freely like a live diary, essay, poetry, and blogs. This is also an open-source platform for you to write blogs.


This I an online community that allows you to share your voice through writing and stand out from the crowd. A good site if you want to create personal blogs.


Founded last 2005, it is one of the world’s popular education blogging services. If you are a teacher or a student who wanted to share knowledge-based blogs online this is a good platform to use.

#12 Medium 

It is an online publishing platform owned by A Medium Corporation launched in August 2012 and was developed by Evan Williams. What I really love about this is that you can start earning without Google AdSense. But make sure you write quality content for you to earn a decent amount of money just like professional writers on the website who contribute on a daily basis.
