Sparkpod, a Weblog (blog) hosting company, has announced the availability of free trial accounts for its service. Sparkpod was designed using 100% Macintosh-based solutions — programmed using WebObjects, designed using Macs, and hosted on Xserves — although PC users may also use it. The service offers the ability to post messages in the same visual environment as your front end Weblog design, and includes additional features such as commenting, image uploading, auto archiving, design template selection, and automatic announcements to friends.
