The fees there - $9.99 per month - are actually quite expensive in some
of the countries where we attract students and interns

I'm going to a hackathon event this weekend where there will be 25
students and it would be great if all 25 start a blog but if they need
to get out their credit card, I suspect some will be reluctant to try it.

Are there similar options without cost?
