Free Versus Custom

April 16, 2008 at 4:16 pm 2 comments

On the web, there’s usually a choice between free and custom. I can launch my own website within a Blogspot or WordPress format, or I can spend a ton of time making my own custom webite.

The most important thing, in my eyes, is making sure that your objectives are met. if your objectives can be met with a free blog, why not just use that? Minimal resources, maximum return.

If you’re releasing a podcast, you can either go through Podcast Alley to get a free cast up on their site, or you can build a custom XML feed for the casts on your server.

Sometimes the path of free is better than the pay-for path. Sometimes it isn’t. The important thing is to recognize the difference.

Heck… even lolCats started out as a regular blog… now it’s an profitable company.
