This means that if your blog is hosted at WordPress.org with a url such as http://netmaniaNZ.wordpress.com (live example at this link).

The wp.me service is by default in all of your blog postings. If you already have a large amount of Blogs that you would like to access via the wp.me URL simply follow the instructions below to find what your wp.me url is.

To access the wp.me service you will need to do the following:
1. Exisitng blog posts
(a) Edit your blog and click on the “Get Shortlink” button.

2. New Blog Posts
Upon writing your blog post click the “Get Shortlink” button.

Thus making it more reliable and stable than the other URL shortening services that offer no guarantees of thier exisitence such as http://tr.im announced last week that they were to stop their free services effecting millions of links.
