While publish.me awaits its date to be release on a premium auction, Swedish guys don't sit and wait.
On 25th of March 2008 they registered publishme.se and built a blogging portal based on blogg.se domain, very popular among Swedish girls, and boys too, but I have only seen girls there. Don't ask me why, as I don't speak a word of Swedish.
Well done! Shame domains such as publishme.com etc are all taken.
Then for Dutch guys there is publiceer.me. Anyone?
