WordPress.com is not the easiest blogging platform. Obviously, Blogger is easier and it is totally free. For some reason, I started my blog with WordPress and taught the same to my students. Having heard this, a friend of mine told me that I have got into the pool from the deep end.
WordPress is complicated and you have to pay them if you exceed the free quota of web space (3GB) but it is worth the pain with the type of facilities it offers.
The book “How to Start a Successful Blog in One Hour” will teach us how to use WordPress to get a blog online in under an hour.
