Fortunately though, simplifying solves the issues. Now think of a blog like driving a car - simple but not easy. Check the Benefits of Blogging.

I'm a Blogger fan and user so I know the experience. Blogger is a "free" platform for blogging. Here you can make a customized website without a penny. It is easy to use and up for grabs to anyone. So why not try it yourself for a couple of months and see if you're into it or not? There's nothing to lose.
