I have just gone live with a new project for those wanting to get into blogging. The site called BlogShifter is a free blog hosting platform that allows anyone to start their own blog without having to go through the hassle of hosting and setting up their own.
It is based on Wordpress and includes all the same functionality of that popular blogging platform without the hassles of setting it up on your own. It is still in beta but if you always wanted your own blog but were afraid to start why don't you give it a try. Oh and did I mention that it is totally free?
