Choosing a well known blogging site like live journal or blogger has a lot of advantages, which are particularly handy for the blog beginner or anybody who wants to start a blog from scratch. On sites which host many different blogs, you can usually find very practical tutorials. These will teach you almost everything you need to know about building and updating your blog, and the software you are confronted with on an established blogging site is usually easy to understand and simple to work with.

These sites provide forums as well. This large community of fellow bloggers can give information, insight and answers to your problems. Generally, these established sites provide directories of their members. This can be a great advantage for your traffic, because all the other bloggers on the site will find out about your pages.

Unfortunately, there are also some disadvantages by joining a large blogging site. For example, take a site like blogger. If you use their standard templates for posting, there is a good chance that your blog will appear and feel like everybody else’s.

Blogging is definitely quite a lot about building unique sites and the development of characteristic expressions. Therefore, many bloggers don’t like the uniformed design and feel that these blogging sites generally advertise.

Many bloggers think that the content of a blog distinguishes it from the other ones and not the design. However, there are quite a few among the blogging community who believe that a unique design should go hand in hand with the creativity of the writing.
