Start blogging this 2021 by using blogging platforms where you can monetize your blogs! Plus, you can connect your custom domain!
You read it right. You don’t have to spend a penny. These are absolutely FREE blogging platforms that let you connect your branded domain.
I have shortlisted 3 best blogging platforms any aspiring bloggers should give a try this 2021!
Blogger is undoubtedly the most common blogging platform for writers. Publishing has been made so easy with Blogger.
As easy as 1, 2, 3, you can publish your blog in just a minute! You can choose your own font style and font size. You can also add pictures or videos that go along with you write-up. Connecting your own domain is what I like most about Blogger.
As per experience, I’d say that Medium gets you on top on searches. I have been using medium for a couple of months already — and I can say that for a certain keyword, my blogs get the most attention on search engines.
Medium gives you the ease of writing blogs. Not only is it so user-friendly as it also lets you embed contents from other platforms. Medium evens gives you a more customized sharing experience. You may change the social preview image and you get the most of its SEO tools. Believe me. Most blogs published on Medium are highly indexed by Google.
Check out my Medium sample here!
If you are a developer, Hashnode is everything you need to start blogging. It allows you to connect your custom domain by just adding an A or CNAME record in your DNS.
You need to have your own domain ready so that you get the best experience with Hashnode. Another feature that I like with this platform is that you could import your blogs from Medium by simply using the link of your Medium blog.
I wish you well in your blogging journey! Tell me what you can say about these platforms in the comment section.
