Can Wix be used for blogging? Hey, what’s going on guys? My name is Greg. And today, I’m bringing you another video on Wix, and this is going to cover the topic of, ‘is Wix the best platform to use For blogging?’ where should you be using something different, and generally answering the question of, ‘can you use Wix for blogging?
‘ Without further ado, let’s get right into the computer here. The short answer is yes. So, if you’re in a hurry, yes, you can use Wix for blogging, and all you have to do is, come to Wix, create a new website, and just choose ‘blog’ right here. when you choose ‘blog,’ it’s going to bring you to the templates, specifically, the blog templates, and you can just pick from any of those, and literally start creating your blog.
If we jump right in here, it’ll bring us to the next prompt, and that is, do you want to use the artificial intelligence or create a template?
So, for anyone making any kind of website on Wix, like hands down, I recommend that you create it yourself with your template. If you do the artificial intelligence, typically, it creates more problems than it does good, because if you want to remove something, it gets a little bit complicated. So, just choose from templates which is right over here, and we’ll click that, and go over to the templates. and now these are specifically all the blog templates. If you decided, you want to change your mind for something different, you can still go into all the different templates over here, but within the blog templates, you can sort of even further by going into specific types of blogs, or you can just stick with these, and choose from some of the popular ones that are up at the top.
The beautiful part of Wix is, all of these templates are completely free to use, and you can even launch and host your own live blog, completely for free without paying a single dollar. The catch to that is that, there’s going to be some Wix branding, and your website name will have your username.wix.com/the name of your blog. So, you won’t have it custom.
It won’t be just the name of your blog dot com. You have to pay. It starts at five dollars a month to get that feature. But on the free website, it’s completely free. You don’t pay a single dollar, and you’ll be able to have a blog live and ready to go.
The reason that is good is that, if you’re not sure if you’re going to commit to blogging or not, and you make your website on Wix like this, you can make that free website and play around with it. See how good you can get it to look, and it might even look so good that you motivate yourself to go ahead and purchase a premium plan, connect it to your own website name, and make it all yours and without any Wix logos at all.
So, that’s the options you have here. So, you can go through here, and you can view or edit these templates. If you view it, it’s just going to show you what that template looks like, and at any point, you can go ahead and edit it.
If we were to choose, I always go for this one right here. I love this blogging template, and we can view it right now, and all it’s saying up top price is free. We can view what it looks like on the desktop.
And also, we can switch it over to mobile, to see what it looks like for someone on a phone. A good thing to know about Wix is that you can easily, in the editor, you can change any of these appearances here.
You can change and make this background bigger. You can customize the text. you can do whatever you want, specifically for mobile, and specifically for desktop. So, it’s not, you change it on one thing, and then it affects the other. You can customize the way that both of them look, to be exactly how you want.
Wix will be extremely easy to customize.
Make it look amazing and have that free site, and have it live. Literally, you can have it live today. You’ll have a site up. So, it is very good for beginners.
So, I recommend anyone who’s just starting out, go with the Wix site, and at least get the feel for it. With that being said, I think you should start off on Wix, because it’s so easy to get up and running, and have a live site, and then decide from there if you want to go with a paid plan. So, it’s $5 to connect your domain or $10 a month, if you want to remove everything Wix and it will be your own blog, where you just stick with the completely free Wix website. But hopefully, that gives you guys a good idea of, if you can use Wix for blogging, but just to sum everything up, if you are a beginner going into a blog, I think this is an excellent option for you to get started.
