When you go to any blogging host site, they will always require users to choose an email login to sign-up with. Today, DoIt Blog will be talking about why Gmail remains to be the best sign-up email for blogging!
What Is Up With Emails and Blogging?
When you visit any blogging site like WordPress, Wix, or Blogger, you will be prompted to sign up. When you do, they will ask you to choose a pre-existing email account. The usual choices would be Gmail or Yahoo. However, through the years, Gmail has stood out as our blogging email of choice.
As it turns out, more and more people (and blogging sites) have chosen Gmail as their preferred email client and for several good reasons. Here are a couple of good reasons why we prefer it:
As you may or may not know, Google runs Gmail. In terms of porting over contacts to add to your blogging network, Google remains to be a favorite for the majority of the reputable blogging sites. The algorithm that Google uses to be able to successfully share posts over a multitude of platforms is also one of their biggest strengths.
Smooth connectivity is important for any blogger that would want to lay down the foundation for their network. Gmail and its safeguards allow for an unencumbered approach toward the world of blogging and the connectivity it requires in order to get the ball rolling.
One of the best things that Google can offer is the extremely beefed up security measures that came after the wave of hacking attacks that targeted email companies specifically. The information that is often linked with emails can be used to steal the identity of a person. This is something that should never be taken lightly.
A blogger often shares a lot of information about themselves online but never enough to compromise their security. When an email is hacked everything else that is linked to that account is comprised. Google has made it practically impossible to create a Gmail account without having a phone number linked the account for verification.
They also keep close track of IP addresses and any suspicious activity. Google is even stricter when linking outside sites like social media to it. They will send immediate emails and notifications if there any odd log-ins from any unfamiliar devices.
Food For Thought
There are, of course, other options for email clients that users can freely choose from. It is all about what you consider to be a priority. What must always be remembered is the fact that there are blogging sites out there that only accept specific email clients as sign-up emails.
Gmail has had a good track record in terms of both connectivity and security.
When it comes to the security of your data and personal information, do you trust your current email client? If the answer is no, we highly suggest that you make the switch to Gmail and never have to worry about your security again.
