I've signed up with three, free, blogging platforms:
-- Google's Blogger (this Blogspot blog). It is easy to use and of course it automatically gets Googled. That's a plus in some situations.
-- Serendipity. The company name is one of my favorite words. But I chose it because it has a lot of good features and uses php, a computer language which I know to a certain extent.
-- Edublogs. It's a good platform for teachers and students. They automatically block search engine scans such as Google. That is also a plus in some situations.
This is the Blogspot blog which you can access directly at https://lingopractico.blogspot.com/.
It also appears on this page using php's file_get_contents() function.
