Signing up is fast, easy and free.
It will take you longer to read how to sign up than it will to sign up. You can have as many blogs as you want, there is no limit. Don’t believe me? Give it a try.
Dress your blog up in one of our many beautiful themes.
BostonBiker.org comes with dozens of slick looking themes already installed, we are adding more all the time. Switching themes is instant and only takes a click of a button. Each theme allows you to rearrange and customize your sidebar using widgets, and several themes let you upload your own photo or image for the header bar. If you’re a CSS pro, you can also customize your CSS code. (if you want a custom theme let us know and we can work something out)
Spell-check, Previews, Autosave, Words, Photos, Videos
Our built-in rich text editor makes it easy to create great looking posts. You can upload your own photos or easily include images from other services like Flickr or Photobucket. You can even embed videos from places like YouTube or Google. The built in spell checker keeps your spelling top notch!
We also have a preview feature that shows you exactly what your post or page will look like before you publish them for the world to see. Finally we know how frustrating it can be to lose hours of hard work, so every minute when you’re writing a post we save it to the server to keep your post safe in case your computer crashes or something else happens.
Privacy Options, including Members-Only Blogs
Want to share your blog with the world, go for it! Want to keep your blog private thats ok as well. You can even mix and match private and public posts in the same blog with password protected posts.
Import from other blogs
If you already have a blog elsewhere and would like to move it over to BostonBiker.org, we provide several import options that can import posts and comments.
You can leave BostonBiker.org any time you want and your content isn’t locked in. We provide a complete XML export of all your posts and comments.
You can add “widgets” to your sidebar and rearrange them without touching any HTML code or messing up your blog. Just drag and drop the sidebar widgets around, and instantly you can have fun stuff in your sidebar. We’re adding new widgets all the time based on your feedback and requests.
Manage Regular Pages, not Just Blog Posts
BostonBiker.org has a feature called “pages” which allows you to easily create web pages. For example, you could add an “about me” page with your biography, and a link to that page would be automatically added to your sidebar. You can even create an entire web site using pages on BostonBiker.org, with a custom home page and your blog as one of the sub-pages.
Multiple Blogs and Multiple Authors
You can have as many blogs as you want! You’re only limited by your imagination. You can have group blogs with multiple authors who are allowed to post or contribute. This is great for topic blogs for things like books or politics, or just a blog for you and your friends in one place.
Monetize your blog with Google AdSense
You are writing great blog entries, providing interesting insight, and making people think/laugh/cry/explore. You mines well get paid a bit for your trouble. Using the AdSence widget (in the presentation option, not all themes are widget ready) combined with a Google AdSence account you will be able to run ad’s on your blog. The ad revenue will be split 80/20 with the majority share going to the blogger.
