How/where to start my blog?

    I’m starting a blog which I hope to eventually monetize.
    SEMrush
    In fact I’m considering beginning multiple different blogs in the hopes of finding one to monetize. I’m hoping to start with a free blog website in case my blogs aren’t gaining traction or if the content is too hard for me to create over the long term.

    Which site do people suggest I use?

    My concern with a free blog site is, the difficulty transferring content to a domain I eventually purchase, when it’s time to monetize the blog.

    Does anyone have experience with moving a site from a free blog to a site where you can monetize the blog? Can you offer any advice?

    Hiya

    I've moved my blog hosting from Bluehost to Siteground before and its no trouble.

    The company you move to will take care of everything for you as a new customer.

    I'm pretty sure it would be the same moving from a free site host.

    The cost is minimal. Do it right first time.

    If you aren't sure if your ideas are any good then find a free business plan template and work through the steps.

    Alternatively, consider the cost of a night out... I bet it costs more than buying a domain and hosting for a year.

    To start your blog you need logo templates. On other forums, I was advised a site where I can make my logos and my templates in order to be different from others and be unique.

    If you want to look professional don't bother with the free sites.

    Also, keep in mind that when you post content on somebody else's domain they pretty much control that content.
