Never, ever use a free blog platform.
5 great reasons to never post your blog on a free platform.
- Someone else is making money from your hard work - not you.
- Brand You is exceptionally powerful - don't dilute it.
- It lumps your work in with everyone else's work. How can you be heard amongst the babble?
- You need to control every facet of your blog to maximise SEO and monetisation - free blog platforms give you minimal control at best.
- It's unprofessional... and you are your reputation.
Of course, if you're reading this, you'll realise these 5 great reasons don't always hold true.
