Get a free blog at WordPress.com

Blogger has a lot of problems, but for a long time it’s been one of the easiest and most popular service to use for people starting up a weblog for the first time. Now it has some healthy competition from WordPress.com, which came out of beta today.

WordPress.com offers users a free weblog on its domain. It doesn’t offer all of the flexibility that using WordPress on one’s own server provides, but it looks to be a good choice for people who don’t want to deal with hosting fees and setup. Advantages over Blogger appear to be a better composition page and better comment spam protection, among other things. Here’s a review.

  1. heh wordpress.com has finally been released for public, whoa!

    And it’s not oftenly to be seen that a wordpress blog uses HTML for PHP page. You for the example 🙂

  2. Thanks for pointing that out. It was done intentionally to keep the URLs for old entries the same when I switched from MT to WP. I should look into changing that for new entries.
