It’s no secret that I really like blogging. In case you were not aware of it, I started blogging lightly in February 2010 but really buckled things down in September 2010, when I moved over to a self-hosted WordPress blog and purchased the amazing Standard Theme.

For those of you wanting to give this a try without breaking your wallet, I’ve set up a promo code that will be good for the first year or however many years you sign up for. When using the promo code, the annual $119.40 will be reduced to $48. That’s $4.00 a month (less than a grande white mocha @ Starbucks). So, let others know about it.
