  1. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    • Hi kuvam. people are searching for 2 things on technical blogs. first thing that when someone has an error he/she starts search for this error by the error message or error code so you must write the topic title as the error message 🙂

      second thing is searching for a complete solution about something for example i written a post as a complete simple solution for “single sign on between multiple domains” because i known from my experience this problem is very common and some developers introduce very complicated solutions based on applications authentications methods , so i am trying to put a full simple solution about it.

      i suggest to you to reserve a domain and hosting then install wordpress on it , it is open source you can upload it and install

      this blog is free on word press but i must move it to a personal server that i can be in safe.
