But today am going to show you clear tutorial on how you can set up your WordPress free hosted blog with your mobile phone. WordPress is expensive yet they offer a gateway through which you can also create free sites. only tat you will have a limited space .
Creating personal blogs with this WordPress free host is fine because you are going to have limited visitors but when thinking about making a site that you want to go viral , The free WordPress platform might not favour your because of the limited space available.
