Hi, folks. As you may imagine, we're getting a bit of a deluge, because of the Google announcement. We're working on it with all our might. Temporarily, we've shut new blog creation off to make some DB tweaks, as well as publishing for free blogs. They should be back up in a few minutes.
And we have more servers on the way. Thanks for your patience. Things are about to get a lot better, despite tons more users.
Update: New blog creation and free publishing is back on.
