So many men, so many minds. This phrase is great for choosing a blogging platform. Today there is a huge variety of various services that can be used by many people to unlock their potential.

Perhaps you are looking for a platform to create a free website, distribute digital content, or share your opinion through written content. That is why you cannot choose one single platform that is suitable for all purposes. Even based on the example of top bloggers, you can see how they use multiple platforms at once.

That is why in this article we want to offer you a selection of various platforms to start your blogging career. Separately, we will talk about the most popular platform for posting video content, YouTube, for those who are going to storm the Internet world with their videos.

YouTube for vloggers

Many bloggers become successful thanks to social platforms such as Facebook or Instagram, where they can also publish their videos. However, they are more suitable for communicating with subscribers through written content and photographs.

If you love the camera, and the camera loves you, then you need to start your YouTube channel straight away. Here you can publish videos of any nature, from maintaining a travel blog to making video reviews of cars from the best car manufacturers around the world.


However, if you have chosen this path, then you cannot do without video editing skills. To make your video exciting to watch, you need to hone your skills in video post-production using a simple video editor. Those who are just starting to learn the basics of video editing should pay attention to Movavi products. You will be able to use a video editor that is easy to use and has a rich set of features and tools for video editing. In this regard, we advise beginner video bloggers to learn more about Movavi.

Blogging Platforms


If you use the web, then you have probably already concluded that this platform is one of the most renowned platforms for building your career as a blogger. Using WordPress, you can conduct your blogging activities for free. If you need additional features as you improve your blogging skills, then you can buy additional services that are cheaper than those offered by other platforms.

Its main positive points include easy management and use. By clicking the “create a blog” button, you will see a set of simple and clear functions. It is up to you what the design of your blog will look like. To do this, you can use a set of free templates, and if you do not find a template to your liking, then you have the opportunity to purchase a breathtaking design for an additional fee.

The negative points include the fact that if you want to use the site for free, then you will not be able to make money on your blog. That is, if you want to use the blog as a full-time job, you will have to pay for this opportunity.



If you already have blogging experience and technical knowledge in this area, then you should pay attention to a service like Ghost. When posting content on your blog, you will be pleased that the loading process is lightning fast. Also, your viewers will appreciate that they do not have to wait for content to load for a long time.

If you are already familiar with the fact that SEO optimization plays an important role in the popularity of a blog, then you will choose this platform. Since it has all the necessary tools to make your blog more visible to other users.

Among the shortcomings, one can only note that this service is not suitable for novice bloggers who do not understand technical features.


This is a great platform that is suitable for people starting blogging activities from scratch. To get started, you will be asked to choose one of the designs for your page. You can choose from over 400 blog design options. After that, you can safely start working on your blog in Wix. Write educational or entertaining articles, fill your blog with photos or use stock images to make your article easier to read, and generate media to engage your audience.

It's worth mentioning that if you want to use your photos for a blog, don't forget to make them more vibrant and exciting with the photo editing tool.

Among the negative points, it can be noted that using the free version can be inefficient, since your blog will host advertisements of the site, and you will also be able to use a limited number of design themes and third-party plugins.


If you don't have any writing skills, but you know how to create visual content, then Tumblr is the perfect platform for your blog. Millions of users use this platform to share their images, illustrations, videos, and gifs with other users. This is a great choice for creative people.

You can share content with other users, but this platform is quite difficult to work on if your copyright is important to you, since you have no control over the distribution and use of your publications.

However, despite this, you will be able to see how your posts are in high demand, which is important for any creator who wants to be recognized.



Bloggers who are looking for something between a simple service for novice users and technically complex platforms can take advantage of this platform.

Content creators will appreciate the flexibility of this service, which is suitable for both creating a personal blog and creating other types of websites. You can choose from a wide range of professional-looking templates for your blog. Moreover, you will be able to change the details of the design yourself. You can be inspired by other users' ideas based on their blog examples.

One of the challenges is that you will need coding knowledge. You will also need to independently protect the site from cyber-attacks and backup data.


It is difficult to make a choice based on the wide variety of blogging platforms. First of all, you need to decide on the purpose for which you need a blog. After that, you can choose the most profitable platform with a large set of tools for website design and content creation.
