Alternatives to AIMSites
A lot has happened in the blogging world since AIMsites was introduced in 2008. There are more ways to get yourself blogging and the cost keeps coming down. While AIMsites will get you the basics for free, a simple paid plan can give you more.
Our first recommendation for any AIM Missionary is to go with WordPress as their blogging tool. WordPress now offers an affordable Personal Plan for only $4 a month. This provides your own personal, ad-free blog inside the well supported WordPress.com network. There are hundreds of templates to chose from, and you even get a custom domain name (worth about $15 a year in itself).
