Don't use Blogger
Google bought blogger a couple of years ago, one of its earliest acquisitions. I've been using blogger since Feb 2005 - writing posts for GotAds?, the blog you are reading right now.
If you don't already have a blog, here's my best advice to you: Don't use blogger. It will cost you visitors, readers and cause you headaches.
Here are the reasons not to use blogger:
- It's not good at trackbacks - so it costs you links and traffic.
- It's slow.
- They've "upgraded" and have 2 separate systems which aren't compatible.
- It's hard to set up sitemaps with all your posts on a page.
What you should do:
- Get your own domain name.
- Use wordpress.
I know you can use blogger on your own domain, but I still would use a different package to run the blog.
