Here are some websites you can use to create a blog or website. These are great places to add blogs to connect to your main website even if you are not blogging at any of these sites regularly. The best way to host a website is to host it on your own URL like I do with BookMarketingBestsellers.com, using the WordPress software as the content management platform.
