  21. 21. My Personal Experience! Last years I started blogging using the free hosted blog from Wordpress.com. (A great platform for beginners to get their feet wet.) I fell in love with blogging! But, I was adamant about exploring the additional features the free hosted platform could not provide. For example:• Audio, Video content without any space limitation. • Personalizing and customizing layout. • Personal url name. • The opportunity to sell my own products. So I got serious, and decided to • register my domain name • get a web hosting account from GoDaddy.com Now I’m happy Blogging!
