When my friends here learned that I am blogging, they were amazed and asked all sorts of questions. Of course, the answers do not always come easy and quick. There are also some who got interested and wanted to try writing a blog of their own. But when I went down into the details of how they should proceed about it, what to do and what not to do, and then some technicalities, a deafening silence and a blank face often follows. I guess I am not very good when it comes to explaining myself verbally.
So I guess what newbies want is a user-friendly platform that will allow them to write and publish their entries in a hassle-free manner. If they want their own domains for FREE, they could also get webhosting and the package may or may not include cpanel web hosting, a new feature that allows its users to manage their emails and files easier, enables the installation of software with just a click, track and understand useful blog statistics, and other advanced options.. Having your blog hosted in a separate web hosting service allows for unlimited bandwidth and disk space unlike in free-hosted platforms like WordPress or Blogger.
Technicalities notwithstanding, I can absolutely say that blogging is a very great way to journal and chronicle things, a means to expressing oneself and even getting others to respond through comments.
