Veritas - Web Review 1 - Blog

All the talk recently in the office got me thinking about resurrecting my desire to stand on my own soap box... hence what you're currently reading. However, this was not the first stop...

I tried the free blogging tool offered by, and needless to say, it did not meet my expectations. However, that does just make the old adage "You get what you pay for" that much more true. Long story short... it posted a blog entry automatically for me, then would not post the one I wanted. After refreshing a bunch of times, the page could no longer be found. It spent a day like that. Finally, out of frustration I surrendered my free blog credit and then tried applying it again, but it seems that only caused MORE problems, such as a "1" being added to my username, but only in some places and not in others [damn programmers :)]. Once I realized my dream of blogging would not be fulfilled with the free service, I surrendered my free credit for the second and last time.

Summary: free blog tool: FAIL

Side Note: This is no reflection on the other features of More reviews later.
