Re: self-hosted blog vs free blogs

Free blogs are not very beneficial because you have limited options for monetization. However, you can use free blogs to give backlinks to your main site.

Does anyone know what Wordpress allows in terms of putting up your own advertisements on your blog? My friend who has a movie review blog said he didn't add Adsense on there, not sure if it's because he doesn't want to add it or if he's not allowed to.

.....and then think of upgrading to self host. For starters, I recommend them to start with free host since it helps them get started and learn everything in detail before switching to paid versions which are spendings

At the time of starting, I used blogger to learn few basic concepts. Then I opened a blog with a custom domain name and hosting. Now it's ranking on Google. My next plan is to write more and more blogs to attract organic traffic.

The more you do what you love, the better the chances of having things working better. I know it takes time to build something worth it and which is why starting with a free blog can help. Blogger is my same story and imagine with a dot tk. But now, things changed.
