Let’s preface this post by warning you that the site we’re about to talk about uses one of those shady, ‘we’re going to take all of your money,’ templates.
The technically challenged no longer have to let their Technophobia keep them out of the blogosphere. Blog Setup Service is a new site that promises to do all of the blog setup legwork for you for $97 a year.
As someone who spends much of his time writing blogs – and not setting them up – I was curious to hear from you on the value of such a service.
I’m not analyzing this specific company offering the service. Rather, I’m curious to hear what you think the demand of this type of service is and what a fair fee to charge for it is.
I know many strong writers who have been scared to blog because of the tech involved. Perhaps a service like this would strengthen the blogosphere even more.
