Day 1 of the "Build A Blog Workshop" is about choosing a blog host. Now this is more important than you might think. You want to find a blog host that has at least 99% up-time and nothing less. There is no point in having a blog if it's never up and running because their server is down all of the time.

This is why the blog host that I recommend is "Blogger". There are a lot of blog hosts out there, but Blogger is owned and operated by Google so you know that it's got to be reliable. I don't recall ever having a problem with the servers going down here. Another big plus, is that Blogger is 100% FREE!!!

Blogger is also one of the most popular blog hosts on the web. I currently have 2 blogs hosted here, The Bloogle AdSense Blog, and The HCG Diet Information Blog. So you can definitely have more than one.

It is important to have a blog host that allows you to customize the HTML on your blog, for SEO (Search Engine Optimization). I will go over SEO later this month. Keep in mind, you can use any blog host that you want, but this is only one that I am going to recommend today. So if you have another host that you would rather use, that's fine too. However, later this month I will show you how to monetize your blog and in my opinion Blogger is the best place to do that.

I hope this takes the guess work out of finding a blog host. Tomorrow I will go over what to consider when choosing your blog topic. 

Remember to check back everyday for the December Build A Blog Workshop. Until tomorrow, keep working smart not hard and as always good luck!
