Nibblebit

I guess the guy running Nibblebit, a new blog hosting service running the WordPress multi user engine, was hoping for some free PR when he mailed me about his new service and the first blogs hosted there are popping up already, so here we go. Nibblebit is pretty much the same as WordPress.com as for the technical aspect. There are a few differences worth noticing ‘tho. For example: It allows “adult” content

The downsides? It’s clearly there to bring in cash. Nothing wrong with that of course but before you dump your current blog you should be aware of the fact that ads are shown on top of free blogs hosted at Nibblebit and some features are “Premium”, which means you have to pay for your account to get them. Besides that I have no clue who runs this, if their server is reliable, how long the whole project will live on and where they draw the line when it comes to deciding which content is really allowed there (their only statement on this is “it should be legal” – whatever that means). But if you feel like making a picture blog you might wanna give them a try.

Tried their service? Share your experiences in the comments. If you’re looking for a place for your personal blog you could also get one at milkblogs, just in case you prefer name.milkboys.org over name.nibblebit.com ;)

  1. I think this is a good thing. It looks like its hosted in Canada but I can’t tell who it’s hosted by. Looking at it quickly it looks like it was put together well. The only downside would be the ads but they are simple text ads you barely notice. I hope this project stay afloat unlike Boy Blogs. I guess its a watch and wait game to see if blogs are being deleted or if they get flooded with blogs and cant keep up.

  2. When a service like this starts it’s always difficult to tell if it will be a “flash in the pan” or the next big thing. SensualWriter and Thumblogger, two other adult-oriented blog hosting services, have survived for years using the same text-only ads. Still, I will be “simul-posting” on both until I’m satisfied Nibblebit.com isn’t going to disappear soon.

    I hadn’t realized milkboys had been contacted about the new service when hornetboi led me to it, so I’m encouraged to hear it is (apparently) gay friendly. Perhaps the rainbow icon is more significant than I realized.

    For those who are still interested, I listed the reasons I’m hopeful Nibblebit stays around in this post.

  3. I didn’t see any popups but I use firefox which pretty much eliminates any. If there are pop-up then that would be pretty upsetting because I would never host on anything that had popup ads, however I don’t see any on this site.

  4. Josh, i would like an apaches.milkboys.com. how can i get it? (mail to apaches_and_faces[at]yahoo.com])

  5. It’s been totally down for the past day, almost. Supposedly they are doing “repairs”, but it’s not like they e-mailed the blog owners to explain what’s going on.

  6. Valuable info for anyone who wants backlinks for no charge. Anybody want free one way backlinks for their webite? I figured I might distribute some good info I discovered a little while ago. Free one way backlinks for your blog. I have been taking advantage of this this for my blogs and it absolutely works super! Just click my name to get what I mean. Not selling anything, it’s totally free and it works.
