One of the most popular blogging platforms for college students and high school students is The Odyssey. If you are active on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you have likely seen links to articles written on The Odyssey. If you are looking to build your portfolio online The Odyssey might be a good option. Unfortunately, you cannot write for The Odyssey unless you have a Facebook account.
You have the opportunity to login with Muse CMS but this is not something available to the everyday Internet user. While it is good that you must have some type of verification to start writing blog posts and content we do not feel it necessary to require a Facebook account to write for this resource.
If you are looking to expand your blog posts or written content we strongly suggest creating your own website as your name or as your brand. This is very easy to do as there are plenty of websites that will allow you to create a free blog or a blog that costs less than $5 a month.
Rather than going through WordPress.org or Blogger (Google) it might be a wise decision to go ahead and buy your own domain now, while you are in college. Over the next several years doznes of employers are going to Google your name so it will look very impressive to have your own domain.
We encourage you to go to Bluehost and get your website and hosting there. They offer some very affordable packages that will allow you to secure your own host for the life of your website. This means you don’t have to worry about deleting or changing your Facebook account. This will be your website with your content for as long as you would like it.
If you must sign up to write for The Odyssey you might as well get a Facebook account too. There is no other way to write for the website without it.
