An experience so compelling that decided “This Is How We Do” it with the elegance of NYTimes, Sony, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Snoop Dogg and more.

It gives you a website like the world’s best and teaches you all about websites, too. For countless bloggers who do this for a living,

Founder: Matt Mullenweg of Automattic
Total users: 60 million, 19% of the internet and 1 in 5 websites as of December 2013
Total employees: 151
Pros: Elegance and ease
Cons: You need to get a domain name and web hosting first
Costs: Your domain name and hosting can be bought together for about $3-6 per month. I recommend HostGator for this, but other places are more than willing to charge you more
My verdict: The best place to blog if you’re serious about it. Good for all types of review websites, fashion blogs, single page websites, business websites, mommy blogs, company sites, eCommerce sites and more.
Blogger is Google’s free blog-hosting site. More popular at the turn of the millenium, Blogger still offers a great service but the designs are a bit elementary. Login and publish your first post for free with only a Gmail account. Try Adsense “monetization”, design a new layout and even edit your first piece of code.

Notable events: Bought by Google in February, 2003
Founder: Evan Williams of Pyra Labs
Pros: Publish anywhere, huge community, images, video, edit HTML/CSS, template designer, track traffic stats in Blogger, Adsense at no charge
Cons: While Blogger is where many writers (including Dear Blogger) started publishing, it’s designs appear a bit childish today. Google owns your blog – they axed Reader – so acknowledge a bit less control upfront.
Costs: Pay $10/year for a domain name without the “.blogspot” extension – otherwise totally free.
Future predictions: May merge with Google+.
My verdict: Everything blogging should be and more – Blogger was the sandbox for names now headlining in tech. The only real negative comes from outgrowing Blogger, at which point many (like myself) transfer to WordPress. Less popular today – even Google’s PR Mogul Matt Cutts runs a WordPress site.
At a time when WordPress and Blogger were neck-and-neck for new users, Tumblr showed up as the 3rd guy to the party. They received lots of sign-ups from users wanting a totally refreshing take on blogging, and have grown ever since. Tumblr was recently bought by Yahoo, who has interesting plans for the whole blog advertising thing.

Pros: Ease of use and ability to share your friends’ work through re-blogging.
Cons: Less customization, just a shade less professional and not ideal for conducting business.
Costs: Free, pay Tumblr to get your own domain name without the “.tumblr” addition
My verdict: Great for photography and other forms of art. Super-simplistic designs and a whimsical vibe make Tubmlr a great choice for any new blogger.

Cons: Less customization – you’ll pay for things that may come free at a place like WordPress, cannot count blog posts, not a good software for accessing and managing blog posts.

My verdict: Less hands-on than WordPress but arguably better advertising and accessibility – Squarespace gets your business site up quickly. A good quick solution.

Wix is a cloud-based web development platform whose brand name stresses originality, simplicity and above all, free. For this reason the platform is popular among musicians, photographers, entrepreneurs and other small business owners who want a quick-fix website on a very low budget. The catch with Wix is the premium features, which of course cost money, which you’ll almost definitely need as you expand your website. The main difference here between a Wix and a WordPress is with Wix you enter for free and pay more as you go, and with WordPress you enter for a cost (domain name and hosting) and afterwards all resources are free.

Founder: Avishai Abrahami
Total users: 57 million
Pros: Drag and drop website builder which uses HTML5, little to no coding knowledge necessary, free to get a basic website online, text editor and free fonts, free templates, mobile friendly, login through Facebook or Google + accounts, and more.
Cons: Charges for many features one would expect to be free. Difficult to transfer away from.
Costs: Premium version of the software and additions, domain names, hosting capability. Unclear exactly how much you might spend but it has been reported to often cost several hundred dollars per year.
ST verdict: Obviously a very successful company with a wide marketing budget and clean look. But I’d never recommend Wix. There is just no situation I can bring to mind in which I would recommend Wix because of their pricing structure and decreasing market share among respected online brands.

Pros: Story telling feel, goal to improve content quality
Cons: Still low usership
My verdict: Probably won’t reach the development status of Blog Tool, Publishing Platform, and CMS but definitely chomping at the heels of Blogger, Tumblr and even Twitter as it borrows several of their services, like topic searches and nostalgic photo shares from the founders themselves.

Interesting facts: 30% of Quora users hail from India. Founded by two former Facebook employees.
