To be a successful freelance writer, one should start with blogging. To start blogging you have two options:

  • Either start your own website and run that or 
  • Use a blogging platform.

The first one is an outdated one and mostly preferred by organizations whereas freelance writers prefer using a blogging platform for its easy UI, ready to use features & technical support. It’s a lot easier to get in front of millions of people and takes less than 15 minutes to set up.

Let’s take a look at some of the best blogging platforms out there for new writers:
