OT : Blogging host (free?) with tags/categories?


#1

HI All,

OT question : What would be a good (free) blogging host for me to join
that
uses tags/categories? I don’t really have the funds to support a hosting
account (Unless $5 is the fee)

Thanks.

I’m aware of three super-cheap options for blog hosting:

  • Planet Argon has typo hosting packages starting at $3/month
  • Rails Playground has a package that looks suitable for a blog at
    $12/year
  • Dreamhost is always super cheap, though not as much as the others,
    and lots of people really like them.

It should be noted that I know the Planet Argon people (Robby
@ robbyonrails.com and Jeremy @ jvoorhis.com) personally and
that they host the site for our local ruby group (PDX.rb -
http://www.pdxruby.org). Judging from their IRC channel, they have a
bunch of satisfied customers.

One of the other PDX.rb members used Rails Playground for a while (when
they were free, I guess) and I don’t really remember him complaining.
I’m sure others on the list have experience with them.

I don’t know much about Dreamhost other than that they say they offer
rails and some people have it working.

Hope that helps :slight_smile:
Ben

Visit that site using the “Flock” browser and you get a free account. At
least… you were getting a free account a week ago when you were on that
browser.

Wordpress.com is now free to all, for the time being, and you don’t have
to use Flock to get it. Which is good on both counts.
