    I have been blogging on different sites since I ventured onto the internet many years ago. However itw as always with sites like blogger or wordpress. I don't want to use a template and I want to start a blog documenting my journey as a photographer but I want my own url and website however I cannot build websites. Where so most of the other photographers get their blogs made? Any advice?

    Thanks.

    I use Wordpress for my blog - a free account there gets you quite a lot of functionality and your own wordpress web address. If you want more you can pay to have your own webpage and such.
    It might be cheaper to host the site yourself; but something like wordpress gives you all the bare bones building tools to work with so can prove far easier to use for those who don't have experience building websites.

    I use Wordpress and have been pleased thus far. Easy to manage and update, even on the road.

    The site is basic but many of my clients like being kept up to date with where I am and what I am doing...

    Squarespace. Costs a little bit of money but it is a great service.

    I use WordPress. Most web hosts offer "one click" installs these days. No coding necessary.

    It sounds like you may have some experience in this arena.

    What it seems like to me, reading your post, is that you want to make the step into the next level. If that is so, it is going to require a larger effort on your part, or having a company or person help you develop just what you are trying to achieve.
    One way or the other, you will have to spend some money.

    1. The least costly in terms of $ is you buying a program and learning how to work it. Time will be your largest investment here. Time is money, so you will need to know how good you may be at learning this material, if your time is worth the effort.

    2. Spend more money up front, and less of your personal time in the development end, as someone else is going to be working on that end.

    Good luck in whatever method you choose, keep us posted.
