There are three-four websites where visitors are allowed to register and create their own blogs and place keyword links which are given below.

The first site would let anybody join and create their own blog. You can publish some content with your keyword links in it. The second website is a community website where you can register and create your own content.
Play carefully with both. Sites created on the jive software. Jive is a community software used by various websites. We can find sites that use it to publish blog posts with backlinks using the query: site:.edu powered by Jive
There are some sites where we can find group blogs/wikis to publish content with KEYWORD LINKS. Normally the queries would be like: site:.edu groups blog.

Example query is: site:.edu groups Mac OS X Server
