I signed up for a WordPress.com blog the other day. Why open another blog? Three reasons: 1. Because it’s there and I always try to test web services or software as part of my work. I also needed the API key for Akismet, an anti-spam plugin I just installed; 2. I’ve long wanted a WordPress.com account and in fact checked daily for my Golden Ticket to this service for more than a month; and 3. I want to separate my very personal stuff from my main blog. In short, I’ll be blogging for my family and friends there. After using it for more than a day, I can say that the WordPress.com interface (using WordPress MU) is the best one around. Most of the features will be included in the coming WordPress release.
