Excellent for running a custom website, even ones that are not a traditional blog. Includes many ways to customize the site, including access to the source HTML code. It's a lot of fun to get the site exactly as you'd like it. Pretty strong for a free platform. Some features are better and some worse, than WordPress.

It's well-suited for helping you reinforce SEO for another site. It's OK for creating a real quick blog if you or a client needs something fast that does not demand a great visual design or a lot of visual content. If you want to create a super sharp-looking blog with a lot of visual content, WordPress will outperform Blogger by about 16 zillion to 1. Like, it's not even at all close. I would never use Blogger as my company's website. That would almost automatically consign your site to a very lonely existence.

Based on my experience, Blogger is well suited for beginners who don't want to entangle in coding, for that Blogger provides a very sophisticated way to build and create their own websites. With Blogger, I can add images and gifs quickly and in a simple way. However, there are some areas in which Blogger needs improvement like there should be more plugins to make our websites more user-friendly and advanced.

Blogger is great for small businesses who are active on social media and don't want to have to pay for the best product. However, Blogger might not be best suited for all businesses, especially if you are wanting to sell products on your site or are looking for something more in-depth. Overall, I'd happily recommend Blogger to just about everyone, but especially to small businesses or even bloggers who want to try their hand in that industry.

As I mentioned, Blogger is appropriate if you're just entering the blog scene. I would not recommend this platform to someone who is part of a corporate organization. There is so much more out there. Blogger feels like a cop-out in the current marketplace. Look, I was a longtime Blogger user. It was extremely user-friendly, easy to integrate Google Accounts, and didn't require any coding to optimize. However, as I have evolved, the technology has not. I am now a Digital Marketer with coding skills, marketing automation experience, social media data analytics strategy awareness, etc. Blogger is not suitable for someone of my experience and skill sets. Even if you are not at an advanced level like I am, and trust me, I know I have a lot more to learn. I remain open to growth. However, I recommend starting with something like WordPress or even Squarespace so you can easily grow, learn, transition, integrate, adapt, etc. Blogger is out, especially with Google Plus being deprecated. It just doesn't work for the modern landscape now.

In the company environment to dispense information to our agents and allow them a location to go to at any time to review is a big plus for our company and our agents. It would be less suited if you're going to use it as a venting point for employees for I can see it just turning to a situation where people could get hurt and bashed.

I would recommend Blogger to someone who doesn't want to worry about plugins, design, or security of their publishing platform. Basically, it's well-suited to personal "family" or "hobby" blogs. When it comes to business use, I would certainly not recommend Blogger unless specifically requested by a client for business reasons.

Great for keeping track of your own personal development as an asset to your company as well as a visual reminder and tool for others looking at your career moving forward. Not really suited for use as an official company blog, but could be an initial place to do it since it is free, and then migrate the content to a more robust platform integrated with a company website.

It's probably a good idea to put on paper what you want your Blogs to look like. (1) Information (2) Audience (3) Search info (4) An Idea of what you want the blog to look like. (5) What the blog is going to be about, do you want to allow comments. (6) Do you want others to be able to contact you?
