My miamimommyblogger.wordpress.com blog was suspended for 1 week because of one affiliate banner I pasted to one of my post. It was kind of stupid because I own the domain miamimommyblogger.com but is so darn easy to use these free blogging platforms and they have such awesome themes. Luckily, my blog was restored and I did not lose all my precious data but I learned a lesson. The hard way.
ButI did some research and found numerous free blogging platforms that are not strict about the "little guys making money". So the best solution is to use free blogs that allow banner ad, PPC, promote PTC, or an affiliate link.
Note Blogger allows affiliate ads and of course "Google's Adsense" but I have read horror stories about them deleting blogs for "spam" when they weren't spaming or other violations without any kind of notice. You can appeal it of course (good luck with that!)
Below I listed blogs that are free and allow affiliate links, banners and ads. Blogger is listed but as I stated be very careful with Google's guidelines and make sure to backup your blog.

Of course you can transfer you own customs domain to these free blogging sites and their are countless benefits to doing this. One of the main reasons I like free blogs, besides the fact their free, is their website builders are so easy to use a 10 year kid can use it. You don't have to be a techi with tons of HTML, CSS knowledge to use. I have a Wordpress blog with NO-NO-NO-NO-NO-NO-NO- and every day I have some kind of technical issue for which I have to submit a work ticket.
I read gobs of exceptional reviews about "Weebly" and "Squarespace" and I am going to transfer some of my own custom domains to these two. I checked out Weebly today and they really some gorgeous and unique themes - completely free. You can upgrade for very little and host an unlimited amount of sites or blogs.
