Hi all,

I've been reading geekzone forums for years and finally joined up few minutes ago, I guess I enjoy being a reader, but I want a blog so I need to post 5 posts in this forum. Not sure if I fall under geek or nerd or both. I love gadgets, database, and programming. I've been working as a  software developer / business analyst in the last 5 years.

Well, there you go my first post in this forum :D

Not to sound mean, but you know you can get blog service from a lot of places and not just from Geekzone though. I just hope you are not intending to post 5 messages just to get a blog, but also an ongoing participation in the forum for fruitful discussion.

Anyhow, welcome aboard.

Well, geekzone has .co.nz domain and so far I haven't found any other blog service with a local domain.

I'm sure I'll end up contributing more than 5 posts in the forum in no time.

well, Blogger has a service called, Custom Domain, where you basically need to get yourself a domain name, and have Blogger hosts the blog service, but pointing the domain name to their server.

I use this for one of the blog site that I'm developing at the moment, which seems to work pretty well. A domain name will set you for NZ$37, or as cheap as US$9 from few places.

Check out Blogger and have a look though, worthwhile if you want another blog that doesn't relate to Geekzone's essence.

Isn't geekzone's blog free? ;)

BTW, what's geekzone's essence? I probably going to write about IT stuff with a bit of local news and a bit of personal stuff.

Two more replies and you got yourself the key to the blog! heheh.

Hmmm just being in this topic, you're nearly there to get your own blog! :-)

(maybe we should pump the minimum post participation up before getting blog privilege. :-D)
