Once you’ve generated content, you might wonder which blogging platform best suits your needs. Some platforms work better for certain kinds of content. For example, it might not be necessary to use an interface as complicated as WordPress if you intend to post photos exclusively.

This article places the three largest blogging platforms (Blogger, Tumblr, and WordPress) alongside each other, allowing readers to select which is most appropriate for his or her content. Some sites require more work than others, but this can be useful if you require more options for data analysis or HTML manipulation.

It might have been helpful if the article included information about the communities surrounding these sites. Tumblr, for instance, seems to attract younger audiences than WordPress or Blogger and is better suited for photo-blogging as opposed to text-based blogging. Still, the article is a great introduction to blogging and will hopefully help you navigate these sites.
