Best Blog Software

Choosing the Best Blogging Software

Everyone and their mother want their own blog these days, and there are lots of services and CMS to choose from. In fact, selecting the best blog software might be a daunting task, considering all the competition out there. Should you go for Wordpress like so many others, or try Blogger instead? Perhaps paying a monthly fee for TypePad or SquareSpace is worth it? I have reviewed 5 best blogging services below to help you choose. If you disagree with my opinion, feel free to suggest your favorite blog site in the comments.

WordPress

WordPpress is the most popular open source blog software on the market. They offer both a downloadable blog CMS package at Wordpress.org, and a free blog hosting with Wordpress.com. Needless to say, installing WP on your own server is a better choice if you want more control over your blog and absolute freedom about what plugins you use and what ads you display. (Try HostMonster for the best WordPress hosting). The free WordPress.com blog can't have ads or paid posts on it or you'll risk getting it removed.
