Des Walsh was speaking at a convention today:
What I hadn’t planned for was the keenness of the people for me to show them how to actually set up a blog.
I took up the challenge and opened the BlogHarbor site. Five minutes later, they had a site up, with their first post – no need to futz about with credit cards, confirmation of emails, no special geeky knowledge required, no configuring databases…
The effect was so positive and the people so enthusiastic about the possibilities, that I know I just have to make sure I include this process in any future presentation.
Awesome – a big thanks to Des for showing how you can get blogging in 5 minutes!
