If you want to launch a blog, you can do it for free with a very decent option. Free doesn’t mean these platforms are poor or that you need to understand coding. In fact, many of our free blogging website choices are as good as some paid-for platforms.

01. <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Wix: The best free blog website platform for newbies
With Wix, you can start a blog for free and we've found it very easy to use. You can use templates, and don't need to know anything about coding. Remove the ads and get a personalised URL from just £3/$3.54 a month.


02. <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Weebly: the best free blog website platform for the technically challenged
We find Wix even easier to use than Weebly. That makes it a great choice for artists and designers who are tech-challenged or new to blogging. The free plan comes with hosting included, while paid-for plans start from £4/$6.
