The Right Blogging Platform For Your Needs

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Because the program that you use to blog with is

such a powerful part of your blogging experience, it is

well worth putting in the time to find a platform that

provides your ideal balance between a user-friendly

interface and a flexible framework that allows you to

make your blog look and feel unique. Finding the right

platform isn’t always easy, but with a little bit of

contemplation and a little bit of research, you will be on

your way to finding the perfect blogging platform. 

Deciding what your priorities are in terms of ease of use

versus customization. Most highly customizable

blogging platforms, like moveable type, are a bit more

difficult to use than very automated platforms like

wordpress. If you are new to blogs and to internet

technology, you might want to sacrifice the ability to

create a custom background design or to integrate a

unique font into your template in order to find a

program that will be easy for you to use. On the other

hand, if you are a veteran web designer with knowledge

of html or javascript, you will probably find the

limitations of a user-friendly platform to be frustrating. 

There is no such thing as a blogging platform that is

objectively the best platform, because every blogger has

unique needs. The blogging movement is very much

about individuality, so it makes plenty of sense that

there would be many different platforms available that

are designed to meet the needs of different kinds of

individuals undertaking different kinds of projects. This

diversity is a good thing, because it means that you will

almost certainly be able to find a program that suits

your level of technical aptitude.

However, the fact that no two bloggers need the same

thing from a blogging platform can make your search

for the right platform a bit tricky. When you are reading

reviews of different platforms, try to keep your

priorities in mind and do your best to take into account

the position that the reviewer is coming from. For

example, a negative review written by an accomplished

software designer who complains that a popular

platform is too limited may tell you that the platform in

question is ideal for a beginning blogger. There is no

such thing as the perfect platform for everybody, so

instead of looking for the “best” platform, look for the

best platform for your specific criteria.
