Blogger/Blogspot are Google’s blogging format. It is a very easy format to use and I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to do a personal blog. It is FREE.
With in just a few clicks you can be up and running with their easy template set up.
I set up a new blog and I had my first post up in just 10 minutes. That was even with some custom color changes. The templates are very easy to use, and you do have the option create your own look.
My favorite feature is the comment box. The commenter can preview his comments (I always need to check for spelling errors) and the blog owner can review every blog before it is posted. The comment section was easy to navigate. I like being able to see the original post at the same time I am commenting.
I don’t care for Google’s support. If I have questions, it takes some doing to get answers. So that is a consideration. I did find a great site that has taken advantage of that fact and gives all kinds of tips for running and monetizing your Blogger blog. He even has new Blogger templates. He gives very good directions.
You can now import from anywhere and export to anywhere from your blog. This means you can export your blog to a back up system. The ability to export and import from other blogs is huge, it is great for guest posts and running more than one blog.
A Blogger blog is good for:
Personal blogs, as a matter of fact I think it is perfect. It is easy to set up and run.
Making money with Adsense. Of course it should be, since the ads are by Google.
