If, like many bloggers, you started out using a free hosting platform, there may come a time when you want the increased flexibility of a self-hosted paid platform.
The question many bloggers ask is: “Which blogging platform is the right one for my needs?” but the answer may be far from simple.
For a start there will rarely be just the one best platform for you to choose but you will often be confronted with a range of options which could fit the bill.
It may be that you just want to avoid some of the restrictions associated with your previous free blog such as limits over they type of content you can publish or restrictions on placing adverts on the blog.
If that is your only concern then you may not be too fussy about your new platform and your only consideration may be how easy it is to transfer your old blog to the new host.
