Keep in touch by giving the gift of blogging


We had several college interns in the Six Apart offices this summer. While we were very sorry to see each of them head back to school last month, it’s also been great keeping up with them through their blogs. One of our interns went to study in Rome for a year, and we’ve been enjoying her updates and commentary on both Italian food and men. Apparently, a good way to learn Italian is to find a good-looking man who doesn’t speak too much English. One Six Apart employee has a six month old niece who is so smart she keeps a blog of all of her activities several times a week. Teething, trying solid food for the first time, and Daddy and Me swimming classes are just some of the topics she covers. While the rest of the world may not be taken with her daily activities, her family members located around the world find each of her posts inexplicably fascinating. There are also a number of us at Six Apart who have moved across the country to join the company, and our friends and family enjoy keeping up with our new lives via our blogs.

If you’ve been wishing you could hear more from your favorite teenager who just went off to college, or your old college friend who just had a baby, or your neighbors who just moved to Australia for sabbatical, we’ve put together some special TypePad pricing that can satisfy your need for more information AND make you look like the considerate, generous person that you are.

If you are already a TypePad customer, you can get a free TypePad subscription (at the same level) to give as a gift by renewing your subscription for an additional year. Or, if you just want to buy a subscription for a special person, annual subscription prices for our TypePad Basic, Plus and Pro services are now reduced to just $39, $69, and $99 respectively, allowing you to save up to 55% off a yearly subscription. (If you are not a TypePad customer yet, sign up here.)

We hope that you and the special people you want to stay in touch with enjoy keeping up through your TypePad blogs as much as we've enjoyed it.
