WordPress.com is now offerring free, hosted, WordPress* blogs with no ads! They had been gradually meteing out blogs to folks who asked, but now they are feeling better about their ability to scale so bring it on!
There’s no excuse – start blogging today!
* WordPress is the blogging platform I use for both lotusmedia.org and OrangePolitics.org. I highly recommend it.
Thanks to Matt for the announcement.
