Four years ago, I started out on Blogger without knowing any better, and while there are professional bloggers still on that platform, it is much harder to work with in my opinion. I made the switch to self-hosted WordPress (.org not .com) and have never looked back. There are many more options for plugins, widgets, and designs on this platform.
This site makes blogging so easy! It was super simple to transfer my wordpress account to this site and I have loved the ease of use! Everything you could possibly need is on the site and it wasn’t very hard to learn.
