Blogging puts the power into the hands of everyday regular internet users. It allows you to publish thoughts demonstrate skills and hobbies and share life stories.

Blogging often covers things of interest within our society.

While blogging to some is still considered to be technically demanding, it doesn’t really require too much technical skill it only needs basic computer skills to get started. So a person fairly new to a computer can successfully develop a blog.

Many Senior bloggers will blog in diary format blogging about their lives, family trees, hobbies, holidays thoughts and feelings
Some like to share their knowledge around things like gardening, cooking, photography, arts and crafts and family.
It’s always good to blog about something you are passionate about.

The presence of plenty of free online blogging platforms have made it easy for the blogger in 2016 and allows us to create blogs for no expense or very little.
They vary in style and ability so a free one will be lacking in a few plugins or features that a purchased one will offer. Try a free one first and if you wish to go further then add more.
