What about having some small device [at home] running some wordpress
instance and a Tor Hidden Service? This means:
- no way to know who's behind the content unless you let traces (like
- you "own" the hardware, you can put it wherever you want
- thus you know who's accessing the device (physically I mean).

Downside: users must use Tor in order to access it, or any tor2web
gateway that aren't pwned by some gvt instance, if any.
