Is it good to use Free Blogs

But if you want to look like a pro, you should think to use the paid ones like wordpress.org. If you sell anything with your blog, people will trust you if you have a good professional blog name, without blogspot.com or wordpress.com following your domain name.
They will trust you and your product. But if you just using blog to write about diaries of your self, using free blogs is OK. One of The disadvantages of using free blogs is your account could be banned if google think your blog is a spam blog (for blogger.com). If you already build a good blog and your blog got banned by google, it is a sad think to happen.

If you use blogger.com, your blog is free to put adsense in it, you can earn money by putting ads into your blog like adsense, adbrite, etc. But if you use wordpress.com you can not put ads into your blog. Your free blogs only able to post contents.
But even if you use blogger.com as your free blogs and put ads into it, it still possible that google banned your blog. It’s sad if your blog already have good ranking in google and with lots of traffic.
