I would like to state for the record, that Linux can be used for more than just blogging; as a matter of fact, Linux can also be used for:
- Playing games.
- Audio production.
- Video production.
- Creating office documents.
- Streaming movies online.
- Online banking.
The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that Linux is quite capable of fulfilling your computing needs.
Today, we are going to focus on using Linux for one thing ― blogging (Hopefully, when you get yourself accustomed to blogging on Linux, you will eventually become brave enough to use it to do things other than blogging).
Why Should You Use Linux For Blogging?
The truth is that Linux is ideal for blogging; it is not a resource hog; which means it is not going to freeze on you while you are putting a blog post together.
One of the worst things that could ever happen to a computer user is for their computer to freeze up in the middle of a project and lose everything (Unfortunately, that sort of thing happens).
On a positive note, Linux works superbly on both old and new hardware and you should not have much of a freezing issue with Linux installed on your computer.
Why Did I Recommend Linux For Blogging?
For starters, I use Linux and I have been using it for many years to create blog posts.
Therefore, it is possible for anyone to use Linux in the same way that I do to create blog posts and publish them.
Dear friend, if you insist on using Windows and Android, please make it your priority to use versions of them that receive security updates.
People who do not know better told me that they use those outdated devices of theirs to blog on WordPress (Apparently, they are unaware of the fact that there is malware specifically designed to steal login credentials).
Blogging On Linux Is Not Difficult To Do
Believe it or not, blogging on Linux is easy to do.
If you can use a web browser, you can use Linux for blogging.
By default, most distributions of Linux come pre-installed with Mozilla Firefox (Which, in my opinion, is a wonderful web browser).
However, if Mozilla Firefox is not your figurative cup of tea, you can install other web browsers on your Linux machine; for example:
- Google Chrome
- Microsoft Edge
I recommend that you keep things simple by using Mozilla Firefox (It respects your privacy).
Install Linux On A Spare Computer
A lot of us have old computers lying around the house somewhere; the one with Windows 7 is perfect; you can wipe that outdated operating system from the hard drive and install Linux on it (Christian Cawley’s article, How to Install Linux on Any PC or Laptop, will teach you how to go about making that possible).
The truth is that it does not hurt to have an extra computer around (You never really know when your main PC is going to malfunction; when that happens, you can use your beloved Linux machine to blog on).
You Also Have The Option Of Purchasing A Computer That Comes Pre-Installed With Linux
If the idea of installing Linux on a computer is too intimidating for you or you are simply too damn lazy to install Linux on your own computer, you can buy one that comes pre-installed with Linux.
Where can you find a computer that has Linux pre-installed on it and is for sale?
You can find them online, my friend.
Here is a short list:
Having a brand spanking new computer that comes with Linux pre-installed on it will blow your mind (It is the perfect computer to do all of your blogging on).
The Bottom Line
Using a computer with Linux for your blogging purposes is a superb idea because Linux is powerful, flexible and highly reliable.
You have the choice of installing it yourself.
And, there is the option of purchasing a computer that comes pre-installed with Linux.

You will love the experience of blogging on a Linux machine (Satisfaction guaranteed).
