Avoid the Malls: Give the Gift of a TypePad

For those of you not wanting to venture off into the mad post-Thanksgiving Holiday Shopping sprees in your local stores and malls, Six Apart has the perfect excuse for you to stay home, feast on Thanksgiving Day left-overs, and still get all of your holiday shopping done. Starting next week, ForkliftTypePad customers will be able to visit and purchase “the gift of a TypePad? for anyone on their holiday shopping list at a special holiday promotional price. An annual subscription of our TypePad Basic, Plus and Pro services will be reduced to just $39, $69, and $99 respectively, allowing you to save up to 55% off a yearly subscription to be given as a gift to anyone you know.

But wait! That’s not all. For a limited time, TypePad customers can get a free TypePad subscription to give as a gift this season. Simply renew your subscription to TypePad on an annual basis, and you will receive a free yearly subscription (at the same level) to give to someone on your holiday shopping list this season.

We expect our weblogs to be flying off warehouse shelves, so after your Thanksgiving weekend run, don’t walk, to your computer in the other room and visit and take part in these special promotional offers… while supplies last!

While some folks might enjoy writing "raw" HTML, we’ve been using rich text editing around the office for the last few weeks, and have found that it’s easier to write, review and edit posts before publishing them to our weblogs.

If you are just discovering TypePad sign-up for our free trial and see how fast and easy it is to create and maintain a professional looking weblog.
