Surely there is a thread about this somewhere on permies, but I can't find it. What are people using for website or blogging software? I've tinkered with many of them in the past: WordPress, Blogger, Blogspot, Google Sites, a bunch that went belly up long ago. These that I listed might not even be going concerns anymore. If there's a real thread about this somewhere, feel free to point me in the right direction.

I don't know where to direct you for the latest and hottest blog platforms. But I'm presently using blogspot, and so do several other people in my area. People around me also use Wordpress. So both of these still exist. Blogspot is easy for a non-techy novice to set up. It has to be, as proof......I'm using it.

Wordpress is the dominate blogging service if you want full control over your site and have a standalone site. But you might also check out https://medium.com or https://steemit.com if you are less worried about having your own standalone site.

I strongly favor wordpress. It may be overpowered for some people but I really appreciate the high amount of customization that is available. That, and it feels like they almost always have more than one possible solution to a given problem. I'm also a big fan of that.

And as I hit 'enter' I realize you said free...

Which brings me to say I prefer the paid version of wordpress and thus my previous post is not quite as helpful to potential readers as I had hoped.

Sorry.
