At the annual dinner of the computer club I sometimes go to, when I was 11, I went in the room's corner on my good old MacBook and started making a blog. The point was to talk about Apple: news, reviews, apps presentations, promotions…
The website is made with Wordpress and the theme is a free one partly modified.
It is hosted at Legtux.
Thanks to a great communication and an interesting concept, the website quickly got over 500 visitors a day. Sadly, managing a blog and writing regularly takes quite a lot of time. Motivation fell with time and the blog got new articles less and less often. Today, it's still updated from time to time by my father, who denounce problems or translate comics, always related to computers.
