I use WordPress.com Personal Plan to build my site, A journey to freedom. You may wonder why I choose WordPress.com instead of WordPress.org since most of the companies and bloggers are using WordPress.org as their hosting site. Here are some reasons that lead me to the decision.
1 I’m not tech-savvy
2 It is affordable compared to other solutions
With as low as $4 per month (billed yearly which is $48), I can get my free custom domain name (https://journeytofreedom.live/) and Jetpack (a powerful plugin including SEO, spam protection, social sharing, site stats, and etc.). The most important thing is, I can get more storage space and there are no WordPress.com ads. Considering my financial status now, this is the best plan for me to start up my own blog and online business. Anyhow, I still can upgrade my plan to move forward after I get more income and more traffic online.
3 It is more user-friendly
I used Blogspot Blogger platform and WordPress.com free plan before during my study time. From my point of view, WordPress.com is much more user-friendly. Some large corporations such as CNN, NBC, Sony, and BBC are using this hosting service too. It has the excellent all-in-one solution, tons of beautiful designs and dozens of widgets. For me, it is highly customizable and has the best blogging interface. Such tools offered by WordPress.com personal plan is extremely useful for me as a newbie at blogging.
