Free blogs are everywhere these days. In the past, it took a lot of time, dedication, knowledge and expertise, or at least a lot of money, to set up and run your own web site. You had to purchase a domain name where people could visit your web site, you had to purchase a hosting package to store the information that made up your web site, and perhaps most importantly, you had to program your web site to be functional as well as visually appealing. Even a simple web site, one that was strictly informational or entertaining, consisting solely of content, whether it was audio, video, or text, for visitors to consume, required quite a bit of programming knowledge to set up. If you wanted anything beyond that, such as a payment system for people to use if they wanted to buy a product that you were selling, for example, the demands placed on you were even higher. Free blogs changed all of that. These days, everyone has free blogs, from stay at home moms and dads to business men, from young children to senior citizens, from students to celebrities. The only thing required of people looking to set up free blogs is a bit of time, the ability to type, and something to type about. There are many blogging platforms on the internet where you can set up free blogs, where the blogging platform has already taken care of everything listed above, from giving you a domain name to hosting your website to giving you a basic layout and visual design. Setting up free blogs takes only a couple of minutes, that is, as long as it takes you to point your web browser to one of the many blogging platforms that offers free blogs, choose a name for your blog, and press publish. Of course, there is much more to blogging than that, but setting up the blog itself now takes minutes instead of hours or even days.
If you followed the simple steps above to set up free blogs of your own, then at this point you have a blank blog, with a web address that probably consists of the name that you choose for your blog as well as the name of the blogging platform that you used to set up your free blogs. If you view your free blogs as a visitor would, you would see a mostly blank page, probably nothing more than a title at the top of a page, using a very simple layout. The hard part is filling your free blogs with content that will be informative or entertaining, intriguing or interesting enough, to make people want to read them, and to market your blog in such a way that you can attract those readers to your free blogs. After all, there are millions of blogs in the internet for people to read, and it takes skillful marketing, and a bit of luck, to make your blogs stand out from the rest. Most free blogs die very quickly from neglect on the part of the blogger, and most that survive the initial few weeks will languish in virtual anonymity, with a trickle of visitors, one here, a few there, if they get any visitors at all. Some free blogs, however, can go on to attract several thousand, or even millions, of regular readers, and through affiliate marketing programs, advertising campaigns, and the sale of products such as e-books, they can even make the blogger quite a bit of money, but such things take a lot of time, dedication, skill and luck.
