    What do you hope to gain from using them RestOwner? Are you planning on starting a blog?

    Yup! A blog indeed, and I was wondering if Blogatize was a good fit since they offer free service and free adsense on your blog. So far I haven't found any bad reviews from it on google.

    My opinion is that you are often better off starting a blog on your own domain and with your own hosting. When you set up your blog in this way, you have full ownership and control over it. When you set it up on another service, you are at their mercy and you don't know for sure, what they will do to your blog in the future.

    What not use Blogger instead? It's a product by Google and it's easier to manage. You can also use your own domain on it.
    Besides, there are lost of available templates, designs, and themes for it. Plus, you don't have to worry on hosting fees.
    And since it's a product of Google, it's easier to get indexed and approved on Adsense.

    BTW, what do you mean by free Adsense?
    To be honest, Adsense is really free, you just need to abide by their rules and terms.

    See, my problem with Blogger is that I don't like it. I have used it before so I have experienced those features you talk about Google. I prefer wordpress, and the reason I was aiming for Blogatize is because they use the wordpress platform, and they allow adsense in their blogs. But, I think I'll take Fergal's advice and get my own domain and a hosting that enables wordpress.

    If they are using Wordpress platform, why not use Wordpress itself and host it on your own.
    This way, you can put Adsense on your blog. :D

    Yes, this is what I will do. Since, I've had the time to test and experience the wordpress platform I am more confident now.

    Thanks for your input guys!

    RestOwner, Blogatize also offers an option to host a blog with your own domain name.

    But even if you decide to host your domain/blog elsewhere I'd suggest that you
    create a blog at Blogatize, post some content and link it to your main website.

    That's how you can start building backlinks to your website, for FREE.

    Excellent suggestion. Would you need to add high quality original content to the Blogatize blog or are you recommending just getting something up there, with links to the site concerned?

    I think re-written/spinned articles will do fine.
