When deciding to use a free blogging service, you may feel a little overwhelmed. There are so many options that you just do not know which one to go with. There are the large free blogging services that dominate the blogging world. Then there are the smaller sites that provide the same type of service.
When you make this decision, I would try to think of who is the most reliable for your needs. When choosing one of the big services, you tend to feel secure that your blog is not going to be down often and will not disappear in the middle of the night. This does happen too! I had a work at home related blog I was posting on one of the free smaller services. I go to login one day and they decided not to host blogs anymore. My blog was gone and there was nothing I could do about it.
In my opinion, choosing WordPress or Blogger would be my two choices in free blogging services. They both have been online for some time now and have built up a good reputation. They also provide you with some of the best tools you can use on your blog. For example, with Blogger you can add Google AdSense ads to your blog posts and generate revenue. They also probably are not going to go anywhere.
The only thing that could change is going to a paid service, but I do not think that will happen. This could happen though as an upgrade, where you can still choose to stay with a free service. If you decide to go the free way, make it the big way. When choosing, look at the different options available and see which service provides the most options for you.
