What site do you use for your blog?
« on: April 05, 2016, 12:39:30 PM »
I usually use either blogger or Wordpress personally, Wordpress being the one I use the most, but I wondered if anyone has any other suggestions for good sites to blog on.

I use  BlogJob, but sadly, it's not open for new registrations, cocolgooh. I must have joined just at the right time because it closed shortly after, and it hasn't opened since. I've been there about a year, so I'm not sure when it'll ever re-open for new members. Such a shame because there are so many people lining up to join, too.

I'm a wordpress girl and I started on the wordpress.com site but my real preference is for a self-hosted wordpress install on a domain.  I'm not a fan of the blogger interface. I do like live-journal for personal interaction but I don't much like their blog editor either.

I also use BlogJob and really like it. It has the benefit that we get paid for a small amount for each new post we publish as well as for some other activities on the site.

As lushlala said, it's not open for new members right now, but the site is in the middle of being moved to a better server and I'm hopeful that once everything is running smoothly they'll start accepting new members again. I know this isn't the first time that membership has been closed as it was the same when I first heard of the site and I had to wait for an opportunity to join then too.

I use Tumblr. It's an easy platform for reaching a lot of people, has the tags feature which helps you find people to introduce your blog to, and the layouts are extremely editable and buildable. It's fun and easy to use, while other places like Wordpress are just boring. I also don't think my kind of blog would be good for a place like Wordpress anyway.

I've experimented a bit with Tumblr but I just don't seem to be capable of attracting an audience to my blogs there. I keep trying to come up with an idea that will work at that site, but so far I've had no luck.

I tried using Wix, but it is very simple if you are doing their trial. They have really nice designs that you have to pay for and you can't customize your url unless you pay for it. I think that is where they get you. I have tried blogger and wordpress in the past.

I am a Blogger type of a person! I find everything is easier to navigate and install and change and add and remove! You name it, I can manage to work around with Blogger template better than with Wordpress. I also have a Wordpress blog, but it serves as a learning curve for me.

BlogJob has been closed for ages it seems. Every time I try to register it's shut. I'd like to try that one though.

I never seemed to get the hang of Live Journal. It seemed too much about writing rather than blogging specifically. It's good if you're writing stories for example but I didn't find much about other things there.

Tumblr never appealed to me. No one ever seemed to even look at anything I posted there when I tried it. It seemed like a huge waste of time to me. So I gave up on that one.

BlogJob has just completed its move to its new server and they've accepted quite a few new members since yesterday. For some reason there are still times of the day when they're closed for new members though, so you should keep trying. I hope you get in soon.

I use my own domain as when I use my own domain, I have complete freedom over the way I place ads or the theme which I use or the way in which I place the graphics as well.

I do not personally like any of the free platforms like wordpress because they are notoriously difficult to rank and also do not provide complete control over your blog.

I'd forgotten all about this thread and the positive things that people said about BlogJob here. Sadly a lot has changed since early May when the reward program was suspended.

When last I checked BlogJob was no longer accepting new members. Many of the old members have moved on to other sites though a few die-hard members are still posting new content regularly, leading me to believe that they're still earning money through programs like AdSense or affiliate advertising.

I'd have done the same if I believed in the long term future of the site but the owner, who was once so quick to respond to any queries, has stopped communicating with members through comments on the site, leading me to wonder how long BlogJob will survive. For a few weeks I waited patiently, but eventually I realised that if I wanted to continue my blog it was best to move it elsewhere, so I've reposted all my most important content to Blogger.

Right now, I use blogger, though I do not currently use it to make money. I have always found blogger easy to use and that's mainly why I stick with it.

I'd like to eventually get Adsense set up right so that I can make a little income from blogging, but I actually blog so infrequently that the last time I tried to set it up they told me I did not have enough posts.

Does anyone know how many posts you need to have, or how often you should post, in order for Adsense to work?

The very first one I tried and kept is Blogger then I also tried Tumblr which is very easy for me to use but lost my credentials to log back in. I also tried using WP which I find quite difficult to use. Wix and Weebly are cute and fancy in my own opinion, I love using them but did not have much time really to stay in there. Blogjob is using WP I believe and I am also on it.
