One of the sites I mentioned in the Blogging from Home book where you can create a blog was Uber. Unfortunately, due to the economic crisis, its investors have decided to stop supporting the site. The site will shut down today.
I think what made Uber interesting are the following:
It is a free site like Blogger where you can put advertisements.
It is like Multiply as you can add friends, photos, and videos.
Although what stopped me from using it further is its search engine visibility.
However, I am hopeful that Uber will rise again soon.
