Free Hosted WPMU Blogs for Those Affected by Hurrican Katrina (9 posts)

  1. "911 Blogs is the result of me wanting to assist the victims of Hurrican Katrina in a geeky sort of way in addition to the traditional ways we have already contributed. It is a way that anyone effected in anyway by any sort of emergency situation can obtain a free hosted WordPress blog."

    Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with 911 Blogs. I only thought that it would be worth announcing here.

    Original announcement: http://www.jasonbainbridge.com/2005/09/08/introducing-911-blogs/

    Thanks. I have a very dear friend working 12 hours a day 7 days a week at the Astrodome. I just sent him this info, and told him I'd help "orient" folks to blogging in any way I can....

    [nev'mind - a problem on my own end apparently, loading fine now....]

    Well the username.blogs911.com doesn't work as it doesn't exist but http://911blogs.com should work fine, what error are you getting?

    I was getting a standard 404 not found. That appeared to be on my end only though, fine now....

  5. I've removed the line about the subdomain to avoid confusion.

    Jason, do you plan on having a directory of blogs that get setup? Then people looking for a specific one can browse for it, while others like me who might jsut want to look through to see what people are doing, feeling & thinking.

    Did that all come out right?

    Yes there will be a list of blogs listed, just got to wait for people to sign up and hack the little piece of code that it will need.

    Just an update that I now have the code in place to list the most active blogs but I'm yet to reach my target audience so there isn't any just yet, however I think this service will be of benefit more further down the track when people have resettled a little.

    The blogs offered aren't temporary and people don't have to blog just about Hurricane Katrina so I see this becoming more and more popular as time goes by.

    That's a really great thing - and the fact that it will be ongoing, as people begin to resettle, will be of immeasurable value.
