There are a lot of choices when it comes to the platform you want to use for your new blog.
But I’m only going to recommend one: WordPress.
I’m not talking about starting on wordpress.com and doing things there.
I’m talking about having your very own self-hosted WordPress blog site on your own service.
Now there are a lot of alternatives to WordPress.
And some people think there is a steep learning curve when it comes to learning how to use WordPress.

Most everything we’ll talk about can be applied to other platforms too, it’s just that the technical details are going to be a little different.
