When deciding where to create your blog you need to consider which one of the following locations is best for your goals:
- In a subfolder
The url of your blog would look like this if you choose to create it in a folder:
- In a subdomain
If located in a subdomain your blog url would look like this:
- On a separate domain name
A blog on a separate domain would have a url of a regular domain name.
