How does the web app look and feel to use?

The website utilizes a very simple design that works well for the casual nature of the service. New users are greeted by a warm background and a white box that contains the colorful logo. The user dashboard area features a dark green header with a white background. The application sticks with a very simple, minimalist design. After logging in, the user is presented with a rather standard text editor and title field (positioned just above the text editor box). A search tool is positioned along the left hand side. The look of the site is outdated. The site is not a pleasure to use.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can get started by filling out the form presented right on the homepage (along the right hand side, inside the white box). The form asks for a first and last name, email address and password. After filling out the form, the user can click the black “Create Your Zing Log” button at the bottom of the form. After submitting the form, the user is immediately taken to their dashboard and can begin writing blog posts.

What does it cost to use the application? provides users with a simple blog solution. The application offers all the necessities, but little else. Charging a fee for the service might be a bit much for some users. Luckily, the creators have kept appealing for casual bloggers by giving everyone free access. The user only hast to create their account to begin accessing the user dashboard and making posts. Users can write blog posts as often as they like, there is no subscription required and no limitations placed on user accounts.

Who would you recommend the application to? could be an option for users who prefer to blog casually. The privacy settings are a nice touch, allowing to be an idea storage area as well as an actual blog. There are better blogging services with more features available.
