Would someone please clear this up for me? I purchased the Blueprint premium package and made my way through the 154 page Issue 1 Premium Magazine. appeared to be promoted due to it's ease of use, tools, etc. I agree, I have a site for a completely different business.

So, I'm trying to finish up the free lessons before I dive into Blueprint just read this in the Bonus Web 2.0 Tips lesson "If you want to use a blog to promote products, don't use - go to Blogger or Yahoo360 (or similar). That said, is still very popular; it has a huge fan base, an excellent Alexa ranking and it gets indexed very quickly."

Is this old information or is this still true? I understand you don't obviously hard sell, it just won't work. Informing, educating with links to product(s).

Just need a clarification please, and thank you in advance.

Hi Jim,

Still true, don't build your business on the free platform. It's great to get started, learn, etc., and making the switch to your own self hosted Wordpress site is easy.

Hi Jim,

The information on selling/promoting on holds true. does not allow their users to promote or sell products on a site. Most hosting comes with the Wordpress install anyway so you can self-host your site easily.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!
