A decade ago launching a full-fledged blog was a backbreaking, time- and money-consuming endeavor. But today, given the number of absolutely free web design tools requiring no coding experience, creating a blog is just a piece of cake even for newbies. All you need is a unique idea, desire to share it and some inspiration (and the Internet connection, of course :)).

Usually, there are three common excuses to postpone creating a blog:

  • I have no programming experience and I have no idea about how blogs are being made.
  • Launching and maintaining a website is an expensive pleasure.
  • I don’t have computer gurus among my friends, so no one will help me with my undertaking. I'll be cast adrift.
Create Your Website While Your Tea Is Hot

Luckily, there are dozens of website builders that can help you fight these symptoms :). Firstly, they’re ridiculously easy to use (creating a blog there is like creating a FB account). Secondly, most of them have absolutely free plans (while their paid subscriptions start at $3.09 per month). Thirdly, they offer great technical support in the form of numerous tutorials, videos and live support. Below are some of the most popular, effective and safest site constructors to create a Blog. Read their brief reviews to select the best for you :)
