Jimdo Launches its closed beta blog feature

Our new blog tool is waiting in the wings. Starting now, we are launching a so-called closed beta phase, which allows a participating users to test the new functions. Within the next 4-6 weeks, we will install additional functions and (hopefully) encounter few mistakes. If everything goes well, as we anticipate, we will makes the features available to all members.

Jimdo's new blog tool enables you to simply and speedily write you own Blog. (If you're not sure what a blog is, check out the Wikipedia article). What is so special about Jimdo's blog feature is that you can be in charge of your own design: you can integrate all the elements that you use for your Jimdo-Page-wether it's text, photos, videos or widgets...


If you want to be one of the lucky testers and want to test the new blog functions in the beta phase, than act fast. We are handing out 200 test accounts on the quickiest Jimdo Users. Later, however, we will also make more test accounts available-so apply now for a test account!


We are first and foremost excited to hear what you all have to say about the new blog tool. Simply leave a comment on our new blog :-) We look forward to hearing your opinion. You can also ask any questions by sending an email to support@jimdo.com or using our forums.



All the Best,
