Do I need a host in order to make a proper blog?Watch
However, some articles I've read say that in order for your blog to be professional/successful, you need a host.
Can someone give me some advice? Thank you
You don't need to be tech-savvy anyway, and you don't even need to know anything about web development. I think there are quite a lot of good blogs on Medium ( https://medium.com/ ), which hosts for free, although generally the kind of things which really make you successful (in my opinion) is having content which is original, informative, interesting, and consistently targeted at a particular audience - e.g. people writing tech blogs will usually target tech enthusiasts; and content which you wouldn't find just by googling or visiting other popular sites. Being someone who really 'knows' what they're talking about helps too.
And if you need a paid wordpress hosting you can get wordpress hosting for 1 GBP per month at webhostuk.co.uk
