This is even more important with the recent announcement about Github
being sold to Microsoft

Is there any wiki page summarizing the options given in this thread or
could anybody suggest a good place to create a wiki page?

Some people mentioned Wordpress, the biggest concern I have with
Wordpress is that some Wordpress blogs are not correctly syndicated[1]
by Planet sites.  If anybody knows what Wordpress users need to do to
make their blogs appear that would be helpful.

Some people mentioned options that require payment/credit cards.  For
the vast majority of students outside the wealthy countries, they either
don't qualify for a credit card or they struggle with cost.  For
example, they won't pay $10/year for a .com domain, they find some
really cheap alternative TLD.  For somebody like that, if they have a
choice between a free blog on Github Pages and paying for something
non-Github, more than 90% of them will choose the option that costs $0.
