I am happy to announce the release of IndieLab.org. IndieLab is a project that I have been involved with for several months and has just opened for public BETA testing. You can jump right to it by signing up , or read below for a further explanation of what it is and what we hope to accomplish.
IndieLab.org is designed to provide FREE blogs for media creators of all kinds. Being involved in the internet media community for the last five years, it became clear to us that there are some media creators who have no interest, don’t have the technical skills, or who just don’t have the time to spend on buying a domain, installing WP and plugins, and generally hacking their installs to achieve what they want…but they still have the desire to create a blog, create media, and post it. Our goal was to make this process as simple as possible, hence, http://indielab.org was born.
Please know that there are MANY things still on the to-do list for this site. The most important now being the creation of tutorial videos on everything from basic posting to how to use the specific tools we’ve installed. Not everything is clear for new users now, but our plan is to provide an overkill of support related materials.
Your feedback is not only appreciated, but necessary for us to make sure that IndieLab is truly serving the needs of media creators of all kinds. Please feel free to send any feedback through our contact page here.
Also, if you’re so inclined, we would really appreciate it if you could take the time to Stumble, Digg, or otherwise share the IndieLab.org mission and services.
