It's worth considering that blogspot (and I think wordpress.com) but
allow you to point real subdomains at their free account offerings. So
if we made a site at either of these we could easily ask canonical to
point blog.ubuntu-women.org at it and use that rather than some
whatever.blogspot.com or wordpress.com address.

I do lean toward being snobby about hosting things ourselves or
managing via canonical hosted drupal (after all, this is a part of a
technical project, I sometimes wince when tech groups use yahoo groups
for a mailing list ;)). But I'm still open to all options.
