The creator of Cheddar (the iOS task list app), Sam Soffes, along with Drew Wilson have launched their cross-platform Markdown blogging platform, Roon. Roon currently supports editing through a Web UI and an iPhone, and by the looks of their website, a Mac app appears to be coming soon.
There’s a lot to like about Roon. Nice and simple. Support for custom domains is coming very soon. I think I’d recommend this for someone wanting to start a very basic blog of longform writing. It supports more than just basic Markdown, as well, which is always a plus.

A post, in all its Markdowned glory.
