WordPress.com was launched after a testing, pre-go-live period. So now the question "how to start blogging" has a very simple answer:
How to start blogging ... in 5 minutes or less?
- Go to http://wordpress.com
- Fill-in 3 (three!) fields
- Check you email
- Write (something interesting)
- Click "Publish"
You can do this in 5 minutes or less, right? To me, this is the fasted way to start blogging ever! If you had any excuses to not start blogging and sharing your wisdom, now you don't
Not to mention how slick the interface is. Drag and drop, WYSIWYG, image upload (so intuitive!) - just to name a few bells and whistles.
