Most of my readers who are new to the cyber world want to have their own blog sites or what we called “online diary”. People’s attention nowadays is more of interest on sharing their own lifestyle by publishing their photos, videos, thoughts, artworks and etc. Then, what do you need to do to make your own blog site? You don’t have domain and hosting site? It’s not a problem anymore!
Okay, all you have to do is register the following Blogging Platforms which I’ve researched. These are all popular Blogging Platforms here in the Philippines. Yup, these might be the “TOPs” although not exactly, but I’m sure these are popularly used by the Filipino Bloggers.
2. Blogger is a blog publishing service that allows private or multi-user blogs with time-stamped entries. It was created by Pyra Labs, which was bought by Google in 2003. Generally, the blogs are hosted by Google at subdomains of blogspot.com. Up until May 1, 2010 Blogger allowed users to publish blogs on other hosts, via FTP.
3. Tumblr is a microblogging platform that allows users to post text, images, videos, links, quotes and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users can follow other users, or choose to make their tumblelog private.
4. LiveJournal (LJ) is a virtual community where Internet users can keep a blog, journal or diary. LiveJournal is also the name of the free andopen source server software that was designed to run the LiveJournal virtual community. LiveJournal’s blogging features include those found in similar blogging sites (multiple authors, commenting, calendars, and polls).
See? You don’t need any domain names and hosting site. All you have to do is register and start posting your stories, photos, videos or anything that you wanted to post Cool right?
