What is a Blog? 

A blog is a type of website. In which articles are written on a specific topic which is written by an ordinary person. A solution to a query is written on the blog, which is searched by people on Google.

How to start blogging?

There are two methods to begin blogging. Blogger is the first option. Blogger allows you to start your own free blog. 

WordPress is the second option. So, if you're a newbie who wants to start blogging while also learning how to blog, then blogger is good to go. 

As a result, I recommend that you begin with Blogger. Because you don't have to make any initial investment with blogger; by the initial investment, I mean, you don't have to buy a domain or hosting, and it's really simple to use.

WordPress, on the other hand, will require you to purchase both a domain and hosting. WordPress is an excellent blogging platform, but you should only use it if you already know how to blog.

If you want to learn more about cms, web design, and other related topics, go to digital.com. They have a lot of useful information.
