It really depends on what your goals are. Do you simply want to express yourself on the web, or do you want to make money online?
If all you want to do is write to your heart’s content, then go ahead and get free blogging tools such as WordPress. It’s really free! Well… except for your time, of course.
You do value your time, right?
And there’s the possibility that you might actually want to build a business with the help of the internet. That you want to harness the power of the web to send you business referrals.
Yes, there is a way to use the web to create value for you.
