I am frequently asked what are the best tools for starting and maintaining a blog. My recommendations range from the best blogging platforms and hosting companies to ways to make money through advertising and affiliate marketing. Listed below are my recommendations for some useful resources to get you started with your blog, keep it going and making money.
- WordPress.org – This is #1 recommendation, hands down! You will need to set up hosting but this will be your best choice in the long run.
- WordPress.com – Although this is free and easy to get started, you will be limited on design and functionality.
- Blogger - a free platform hosted by Google
