I just wanted it out there that the free wordpress setup offer I announced in February is going to be offered indefinitely so I’ll be taking all the “limited time only” bits out of that offer page this weekend.
I had announced it as limited time only originally because I wasn’t sure if I’d be overwhelmed with requests or if the experience would be worth it. As it turned out, the demand was strong but not overwhelming. I’ve set up almost twenty blogs for people since then and it has also led to a nice amount of ongoing freelance work. In fact it’s the most profitable business move I’ve ever made in my five years running this site, by far. It may even be the first real business move I’ve made running this site. I’ll talk more about that next week.
Also, it feels great helping to get other people going on their own blogs.
