Blogger review  - Rev|To 

Blogger is an easy to use blogging platform owned by Google.

 

Your login credentials for Gmail work across all Google apps and for Blogger there is no difference.

Once logged in to the platform, you can create a blog, select a template for the look and feel you’d like, select a mobile template, add posts, and add pages and you’re almost ready to launch!

Besides being one of the simplest platforms to get up and running, you’ll find most of the tools that you would see on a typical blogging platform.

 

THE GOOD / 

THE BAD / 

  • FREE
  • Being on Google’s platform you have robust security
  • You do not own the site….well Google does
  • Limited tools and support
  • Templates are very limited

 

 

THE BOTTOMLINE /

Blogger is an easy to use blogging platform owned by Google. Your login credentials work across all Google apps and Blogger is no different.

The leader in Domain Names has expanded their offerings to become a 360º Web solutions provider. 

 

 

The templates can be customized to match your brand colors and the posting tools feature standard Word style editing.

What WordPress calls Widgets, Blogger calls Gadgets and there are 82 Gadgets available from the control panel.

There are also a number of third party Gadgets available for customizing your blog.

As a single author, you can create a private online space for collecting news, links, and ideas, to keep to yourself or share with as many readers as you’d like.

Blogger profiles let you find people and blogs that share your interests.

Your Blogger Profile: is where you can list your blogs, your interests, and more, lets people find you (but only if you want to be found).

Your site will be a subdomain on blogspot.com (yourwebsite.blogspot.com) or you can use a standard domain name (yourwebsite.com). Instructions are provided if you decide to go that route.

Support is available through a unique feedback system that allows you to highlight the issue and send to developers.

There is also a blogger support community as well as tutorials and a troubleshooter.

 


 

Although there are fancier blog tools out there, the mixture of cost (free) and flexibility makes Blogger one of the best deals around.
