I was chatting to my cousin the other day about a blogging platform to use. He originally asked me about WordPress or Drupal with the intention of hosting the blog on server space he would rent each month. His initial idea was to set up a family blog where members of his family would post updates from time to time. He also wanted everyone to have a family email address. All of this sounded great in theory but when we started to consider whether his parents would contribute to the blog the odds were that they wouldn’t. At the same time it seemed unlikely that they would make the switch across to a different email address so the need for a domain name became far less pressing.
