BC Bloggers Meme #5

This week’s question for fellow bloggers:

Where do you host your blogs and how much are you paying for it?

Since I started blogging in 2007, I have never paid for a hosting service. I am happy with my current domain – WordPress. I was initially with Friendster blogs, moved to Blogger, until I got to WordPress.

Sometimes I contemplate on whether I should start getting a hosting service, but in the end I stay on my free domain. I always think why I am blogging on the first place – and that is because I wanted to write what my heart and mind says. That’s all. I haven’t really thought of earning through my blogs or getting paid for the posts I write. I want to have a free hand on whatever I want to put on my blog. That is why my site is as much as possible free from ads, and unnecessary links.

I know some have a different view on getting a hosting service, but I guess, to each is his own. Whatever suits you, is for you, as long as you enjoy what you are doing.

Cheers, everyone!

    I agree with you. Anyway, I started blogging in 2010. 6 months after, I submitted my blog to the marketing network, was hired and got opps. A year after, I bought my own domain, but I was still using free hosting. Recently, i bought web hosting for my WP blogs. So, all my WP blogs are self-hosted. I monetized my blogs and having a self-hosted blog is a plus.

    Have a great day. BTW. I want to join this meme.

      I envy those who are really making money out of their blogs coz it’s like hitting two birds in one stone – enjoying what they are doing, and at the same time being paid for it. Very cool!

    @kat, joining this meme is really cool, you get to visit a lot of cool blogs that you may not have seen before, and it’s fun! I guess I’ll be staying on the free domain and hosting, because I’d rather give the money to charity.

    Just like Sis Mona, I also started blogging 2 years ago with free domain under blogspot. It was like a diary for me until I discovered that I can earn money through blogging. I am addicted in joining contests online and one of them is joining a free domain name and hosting and luckily I won. It all started this year when my blogging career boosts up starting from winning a free domain and hosting and my blogs was also accepted by Payu2blog. 🙂

    argh, it’s either i was totally busy or it complete slips my mind that i forgot to join this week’s bc bloggers. will just catch up next week i guess, i was anticipating it the entire week yet it came + went without me knowing now the linky is closed, too bad! anyway, sorry for that unexpected rant! i started blogging at blogger, then I won a domain + self-hosting from mommy Ma Belle so I decided to make a new one. just recently i also won another domain + self-hosting. the thought of having another blog sounds too much on my plate so i decided to transfer my son’s blog to wordpress instead. i’ve had a few opportunities of monetizing my blog + hopefully i’d be able to have more opportunities in the future. am planning to put my earning in my son’s trustfund, see. i think it will be a good idea if you monetize your blog too. you can still have free reign anyway, just make sure to take only those that will jive with your blog’s overall theme, good luck 🙂

    @ the Writer

    heya 🙂 I am a new bee and I dont know even much about blogging stuff. But I made my blog just to share my experience same like you and to get inspired by reading some of the good writer’s blog. The greatest wealth one can earn is only the knowledge he or she possess. In today’s time money is the necessity and who does not want to get it ? but the main thing is that we should pass our knowledge so as to multiply , if we will think of getting money from it there will be less people who will be benefited, about the adds that people do on their blog for geting money is not bad according to me 😛 … Anyways My thinking is somewhat like you 🙂
    you have a great blog and thers alot to read and to know. I will keep reading 🙂

      Hi Tashu! Thanks for dropping some lines. Maybe our brainwaves are on the same pattern. I really thought about monetizing this blog before, but then I realized that it may not be even worth it, coz I really enjoy my blog’s outlook at the moment 🙂 I just want it as it is.
      Thanks for the follow!
