Best Free Blogging Platforms – Forbes Advisor

0

Weebly’s free plan offers a WYSIWYG editor to create a free blog. Design options include custom fonts, parallax and reveal animation effects, image editor, video backgrounds, and custom design capabilities via HTML/CSS and JavaScript (JS). The plan additionally offers SSL certificate (for website security), shopping cart, unlimited e-commerce items, inventory management, tax calculator, SEO and lead capture tools and chat and email support.

Weebly’s free plan offers limited storage of 500MB. You’ll also need to use a Weebly-branded subdomain instead of a custom domain that matches your brand. You will need to upgrade to a premium plan to use a custom domain. It also doesn’t offer phone support if you run into a problem while creating or managing your blog. Finally, unless you upgrade to the Professional or Performance premium plan, Square ads will appear on your blog pages.

While Weebly’s free plan offers a way to get your blog started, its premium plans will undoubtedly offer more features to take your blog to the next level. Starting with the very affordable $6 per month personal plan (if billed annually), you can connect a custom domain to your blog. Its $12 per month plan (if billed annually) additionally offers blogging-friendly features, including unlimited storage, analytics, a free domain, ad-free blogging experience, and phone support.
