As my podcasting partner Shel Holtz and I often say with tongues firmly in cheek, "We have copious spare time."
Very easy to set up and the admin interface is very similar indeed to that of WordPress itself, ie, what I see with this blog when I log in to it.
I received the invitation - you have to be invited - from Rob Safuto. Rob's also a multiple blogger - in addition to his excellent PodcastNYC, he also writes the highly-readable The New York Minute Show, an insider's podcast about the Big Apple, and the Red Room Chronicles, a blog about Marriott Hotels.
I'd actually received an invite from WordPress in September. But I didn't get around to activating it until last weekend - which is when I discovered that the invite expired after seven days.
Anyway, I have the new blog, just called Neville on WordPress.com. Not sure yet what I'll do with it nor how frequently I'll post to it.
Have to see how much of that copious spare time I can use.
