Below are free blog hosting platform

Blogger.com

Blogger is a free blog hosting platform owned by Google, it has got many features that will make your blog very attractive and interactive. The beauty of blogger is that anybody from any part of the world can start their own blog

Yola.com

If you found blogger not to be user friendly, then consider hosting your free blog with yola.com, it has got many features that will also make your blog interactive and attractive. It also comes with different templates that you will find useful

Wordpress.com

If you found that the blogger and yola are not the best free hosting platform, then wordpress is also one of the leading blog hosting that many webmasters uses. It has got a variety of themes that you can apply.

Weebly.com

Although many people still don’t know about weebly for free blog hosting, it is also one of the best free blog hosting platform that you can use. Weebly comes with few themes to apply but it is very simple to use

Toady.com

Is also one of the free best blog hosting platform, the only one disadvantage of today.com that you need to know is that lock out users from other countries and their services are limited to a few selected countries. Find out whether your location is eligible to use today.  

Those are some of the mostly used free blog hosting platform that you can use. One big disadvantage is that your blog address will have their name at the end i.e. mybog.weebly.com, myblog.today.com, myblog.wordpress.com, myblog.blogger.com, myblog.yola.com.
