Not all bloggers want to host their own blogs, and not all bloggers want to deal with the technical side of blogging

In an age where people have to worry about getting fired from their jobs over what they post in their blogs, most blog platforms and hosting solutions fall short. Those more traditionally used for personal blogging and journaling don't usually offer the features bloggers want (such as for marketing or monetizing their blogs), while those more traditionally used for business and professional blogging rarely offer adequate privacy options on a per-post basis. Journal Home ( provides solutions to all of these problems with the addition of several new tools and features for their free blog hosting solution launched in 2005.
