“Publish a Beautiful Blog Post Online in Seconds” is a simplistic, quick and easy way to make a web page, including with a graphic.

The service is free, and anonymous. They don’t ask for, now store, email addresses or any personal information.

There is no setup. Just write and hit save. It takes just seconds to publish your article and share it with the world. View their demo page with some amusing or, indeed, clever ideas.
