Starting a free WordPress.com blog

March 6 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Blogging is a fun, creative way to express your thoughts on the web and become part of a larger online community. Thanks to today’s technology, it’s easier than ever to start your own blog. You don’t need any coding experience or technical knowledge to get started — in fact, you can get your own site up and running in a matter of minutes.

A free blogging platform is the perfect way to get yourself set up with your own corner of the web without too much effort. Everyone’s focused on social media these days, sure, but there’s something about the permanence of a blog – not to mention the freedom to pen your thoughts without worrying about character counts – that’s hard to resist.

You can’t beat the feeling of having your own site, and having a free blog can also be a great self-promotion tool to help get your work seen by more people.

On WordPress.com, you can rapidly create an entirely free blog, with a reasonable amount of customisation.

WordPress.com is a blog hosting service offered by Automattic, a company created by WordPress.org co-founder Matt Mullenweg.

WordPress.com offers a basic blog hosting service for free. You can purchase additional options like a custom domain name, additional storage, and other premium services.

Started in 2005 with a goal to bring WordPress experience to a larger audience, WordPress.com is a good blogging site for users who don’t want the advanced features of self-hosted WordPress at WordPress.org.

Newcomers might find WordPress a touch bewildering initially, but it’s the best free option for anyone wanting a great mix of power, customisation and usability.

During this meetup we shall have free Wi-Fi and everyone will leave with his or her own blog live! Dont miss!!
