You can start a blog in just a few seconds using @hashnode and then you can move that to your own domain if you get one later. They will even help distribute your articles on their platform. By far the best place to create a blog in 2020, imho.

The thing that attracts me the most to Hashnode is that it combines both worlds of a dynamic blog like a WordPress blog and a static site like a Gatsby blog.
It has more features than a static blog, but it is less-bloated than a WordPress blog.
