The Truth is, I went for a break and also to prepare something new to feed my readers. Believe me, blogging has never been a day job to tackle, and it requires the three essential ingredients to become a successful blogger.

On the other side of the story, there are advantage and disadvantages of blogging and also on the aspect of choosing a hosting platform.
Nowadays, blog owners turned their passion into a money making community where they no longer have value for their blog in posting something informative. Instead, they now take it un serious.

This has pollute the minds of those who are new into blogging to give their attention on making money, instead of sharing their passion.

Generally, if you are new into blogging or wish to start a blog, you will receive random suggestions from professional bloggers or web developers suggesting you to choose from a preferred blogging platform either free or paid. And you can also hire them to build and design the blog for you and pay them, that's if you can't do it your self.

My Point Is:

The unfair part of the story is when they don't give you a clear description of what you are about to start, and the advantages and disadvantages of the blog platform.

Either in good or bad, some of their interest is for you to hire them and pay them without leaving a short description of how the platform works.
