Good Points Of Blogger:
- Blogging on Blogger is totally free.It gives you unlimited space/bandwith forever and that is why I say freebies love to blog on it.Only thing you need is to buy a domain for your blog from any cheap domain name provider.No worries you can also blog on without domain with a .blogspot sub-domain but I prefer to buy a domain because it gives your blog a professional look and builds trust too if you are selling some products.
- You dont need to buy premium templates for your blog because they are free of cost while some templates sites sell premium templates too.You can customize templates easily and free. Check: Top Blogger Templates
