I learned that all platforms are different in some unique way. Some platforms are more costly and some are cheaper. Some platforms give easy to use templates while other platforms give very basic templates. Some platforms don’t even give templates and the owner has to make their site from “scratch”. It just depends on what the individual wants to do and they can assess what platform is best.
I used wordpress for a blog for my wife a year ago. I used wordpress because it gave us more freedom to choose what plan we wanted to use. We paid for a cheaper plan in order to get more traffic. After doing my research from this project I believe I would still go with wordpress. It seems like the easiest to use for a “beginner”.
I created a video with the publishing platforms to show what platforms there are. I also included a picture of wordpress because that is the platform I like best.
