Blogjob or Blogger? Which blogging site should I use?
Blogger, a Google site, offers a sense of security, but I would struggle to get my blog seen. Blogjob is a blogging community. It pays a small amount for each post and interaction with other members, and allows me to use AdSense and affiliate links but I’m concerned by a line in their Terms and Conditions granting them ‘exclusive ownership of Submission of every kind’. I’m not sure if this means my content or only comments etc. and whether it would prevent me from moving my blog to Blogger if I ever wanted to do so. If you were a first time blogger in my position, which site would you choose?
I will take blog option. Here is somethings that i am doing But as well as you also blogger. you can see this blog http://www.currentworlds.com/
I think you should try and go for both of them, because to me i can see some promises in blogger and blogjob for now has it own profit, though it may take time but with hard work you we make it. see you at the top.
Thanks. I came to know about Blogjob from you. Otherwise, I am a blogger and I have been blogging since 2007 under the name www.suthinks.blogspot.in.
But over the years I have become irregular. Mainly because, I felt I was not reaching anywhere -be it money, appreciation or discussion. If that answers your question!
Fine good for you. I just want to help. thanks
I'm afraid that will happen to me too if I join Blogger. That's why I like the sound of Blogjob. I'm just not sure whether I can trust that site.
It depends what you want out of it. If you just want to write then Blogjob. Having you own website/blog requires a lot more marketing, but if i honest i find it fun. I learnt how to write online with hubpages then set up http://loveskiathos.co.uk/ which has been around now for around 3-4 months and i am really enjoying the whole experience.
I want to write, but I want people to read what I write and I'd like to earn money out of it. My problem is that I'm hopeless at marketing and don't have many followers on social media.
I didn't have any followers i when i started the website and didn't really advertise that the site was mine among friends either.
Write great content share on twitter and google+ and people will come. Looking at your hubs, you are a good writer.
hii gina....i suggest that blogger is a evergreen thing in blogs. but in case you want your blogs be famous or viral.,blogger is not a right place
Hi Gina, I think you should try to build your own website. Thanks goodness, it’s so easy today with so many code-free website builders like Wix, uKit or Weebly.
Blogger and various blogging communities are also a great option, but having your own website with your own domain name and custom design is much better. Having your own blog puts YOU in the driver’s seat - you own the content, you can decide what ads to display etc., saying nothing about the professional look of the site.
Even if you don’t know a single HTML tag, you can build a nice-looking site - online site builders provide a visual interface making the site building process a matter of drag-and-drop.
You can either use a free version of a site builder (with ads and subdomain), or purchase a paid account which will cost you about $4-$6 a month.
i started to write at blogger 5 years ago. Nothing much to gain but adsense.
I just started at blogjob today, just eaned 50 cents with 113 points.
try both sites but one article per day, don't exhaust yourself
Actually I found out about BlogJob from you and decided ti check it out. I too have a blog on Blogger and never really had luck with it and like what I see at BlogJob. Yes, according tot he TOS your post cannot show up online anywhere else. But that is the same as HubPages. I do like the point system where you get 50 points per post. When you reach 5,000 points you can get $25 in Paypal cash. And I do like you can have many blogs on that site. However, I do not like the posting limit at 150 points a day-which means you can only post two blog entries per day-since you get small points just for logging in and interacting. However, that can increase over time.
I am slowly moving my hubs over to BlogJob. and deleting the hubs as I go.
I've created an account at BlogJob, but I realised it's not the right place for a photo blog because 300 words content is too much for that, so I'm going to move that one somewhere else. Save your points until you have 10,000 and you get $100.
I noticed that too about 10,000 points. It will take me a while since of the blogging limits-maybe 50 days to get 10k in points.
I have no idea which is better, Blogger or BlogJob. I have blogs at Blogger and since a few days I started blogging at BlogJob. I am trying both and we´ll see how they go.
Yes, I've seen you on BlogJob. I've started a photo blog there but I don't think that's the right place for it because there's too much written content required. But I'm no longer sure that Blogger is the right place for that one either.
@Gina. I found you there and contacted the owner and he is giving you credit for referring me since you indirectly did by posting this question. If you do decide to stick with this one I am loiseryan on that site
Thanks @LoisRyan13903 . I was trying to work out where that referral came from.
You're very welcome. I have one as well but not sure where it came from. But any time you share something through places like Twitter, one of your contacts might join
That's good to know. I've been sharing, but I don't have a big following on social media, so I don't get a lot of visits out of it.
For me Twitter works for me with followers. Usually with whoever follows me I follow back
I'm still not sure which is the best site for long term use, but I've decided that BlogJob is a great place for first-time bloggers to hone their blogging skills. I've written a Hub about the site for anyone who wants to know more about it.
10 months ago BlogJob seemed the best option, but after they suspended their rewards program, I moved most of my content to Blogger. I may not earn as much there as I did at BlogJob, but at least Blogger has a future. I'm not sure that BlogJob does.

I am not too keen on Wordpress. It looks pretty and clen but the advertising options are limited. I use blogger because it's easier to use and gives me freedom with Adsense, but I really hate the limited templates. I am thinking of going domain and website for my recipes. What are your thoughts?...
