Blogging Tools and Services

The way that people share their views and opinions on every conceivable subject have changed since the Internet was popularized. Since the early days of LiveJournal, people have had open platforms to share their views. Though many users nowadays use instant messaging services such as WhatsApp to share their views with close friends and family, there is still a healthy market for users that wish to express their views in a more permanent fashion.

This is where services such as WordPress and Medium come into play. These modern services constantly update with modern web design trends to give users comfortable methods to share their points of view with potentially larger audiences.
