I am always excited to test new blogging platforms. However that is not what happened here. Blog.com is another WordPress ran blogging site. I went through all the features, set everything up, and even posted fake blogs to see what all they had to offer.
- Personal bloggers.
You are fully capable of running your own blog for free.
- The features are really lackluster. I didn’t see anything that didn’t already come with WordPress out of the box.
- Their premium features are $99 like WordPress.com but don’t come with as many benefits.
- The only reason I can see someone choosing Blog.com over WordPress.com is if they liked the themes better. Even then, these themes were not tested. The first theme I liked had bad alignment.
If you are dead set on using a WordPress hosted site, I’d stick with WordPress.com. At least then you’ll get additional features and very nice themes.
