Reporters and editors should blog. To help the cause, I’m offering three newspaper journalists the chance to start a blog with their own domain practically for free — they have to buy the domain, but I’ll host it for free. This hosting account I have now allows me to run a total of six domains. I have one and I’ve already promised two to other people (more on that later). That leaves three accounts available.
If you are a newspaper reporter or editor and your company does not offer you a place to blog, and you don’t currently have a blog of any kind, you qualify for one of these accounts.
If you would like an account, please post your request in the comments to this post. Please share a little about yourself, your background and current journalistic status, and why you want to blog. If there are more than three requests, I’ll need to use what you say and my intuition as to who gets one of the three accounts. It’s not a contest, but if there are more than three requests, I can’t fill them all.
Sure, you don’t need me to host your free blog, but this is a chance to do so under your own domain, which for some people is a barrier to entry. I hope this offer spurs a couple of people to jump into blogging.
