Since Blogtown NZ launched, we have provided a great free blogging site exclusively for Kiwis. While we are committed to always providing a free service that anyone in NZ can use, we’ve had lots of requests for additional features such as the ability to turn off the ads that are displayed on blogs, as well as increasing the storage space for photos.
So today we are launching the Blogtown NZ Supporter feature. This enables any blogger to sign up as a Blogtown NZ Supporter and as a Supporter you’ll receive an extra 1GB storage space on the server (10 times more than free blogs) and your blog will no longer display any ads.
Another often requested feature is the ability to use a custom domain name with your blog. We’ve just implemented this feature too and are making it available to our Supporters. There are several other new features in the pipeline which will be made available exclusively to our Supporters.
To become a Supporter, please log in to your Site Admin page and check on the left-hand menu for a section called “Supporter”. It costs just $5 per month to sign up, but if you pay annually then you save $10 by only having to pay $50 per year. Payment is handled through PayPal so you can use your existing PayPal account or any major credit card.
If you have any questions or comments, please raise a support request through your Site Admin, or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
