I just got an email from the folks at Techburgh and they’ve worked out a deal for some very affordable hosting, it’s less than $1 per month to have you blog hosted on their servers… very nice deal actually, and you’ll become part of the TechBurgh blog network so it basically includes some basic promotion for your new blog as well… now a bad deal, too bad I already have hosting…
But here’s the email with the info:
TechBurgh and Tubu Internet Solutions bring you $10/year Hosted blogs
Are you blogging? if you are, wanna make it better? if not, why not?!
Let me define ‘blog’ for you.
Short for “Web log,” a specialized site that allows an individual or group of individuals to share a running log of events and personal insights with online audiences. Blogs with political or current-events themes have grown in popularity and become “soap boxes” for instant mass-audience commentary.
We at the TechBurgh blog (and podcast) seem to be pretty good at making deals. We pleaded and wheeled and dealed (and at one point threw a tantrum) with the fine partners at Tubu Internet Solutions to arrange something really special to grow the ‘blogosphere’.
You can now get a hosted WordPress blog for just $10 per year!
We’re aiming to sign up 250 blogs. It seems like a lot but I think it’s doable.
We’re trying to promote blogging. Not just “I had a good cup of coffee this morning” blogging but interesting, organization, fundraising, meaningful blogging too. Especially in the Pittsburgh region – cos we love Western Pa!
What is a hosted blog?
Well, it is a professionally hosted (Tubu is great!). A hosted site gives you functionality, flexibility and customization that anyone needs to start their own blog. Use templates, addons and all kinds of fun stuff.
Wait, isn’t there free services out there?
Yes, yes there are services like blogger and typepad etc. etc but they’re full of ads and not nearly as customizable as a hosted blog is. Also withh a hosted blog you can use your own web address (instead of whatever.blogger.com)
But I don’t know how to blog!
You’re reading this aren’t you? well, in that case you know how to blog. It’s that easy. If you need help both TechBurgh and Tubu can help.
How can I help?
I know a lot of you might have blogs already but spread the word, post an article on your blog/site and let people know they can get blogging for less than $1 a month.
How do I get started?
Just reply to this message and we’ll get you going. http://techburgh.com/blog/2007/10/20/get-blogging-were-starting-a-network/
Well, every blog that signs up will be listed on the TechBurgh blog (instant promotion) and will be part of a TechBurgh blog network.
