  2. Hi Vishwajeet,

    It’s nice to know that there are several different platforms can use to get started. While I’ve always used a paid self-hosted WordPress blog.

    I don’t think that there’s anything wrong with testing the waters with a free platform.

    I’ve heard so many people using Medium. I have yet to try that.

    Thanks for sharing these platforms with us. I know that just knowing which platforms to use can help anyone get started with their blog.

    Have a great day 🙂
