I use Blogger for a variety of purposes, including curating a local news website. The platform allows me to easily upload news items, photos, and more. It is simple to use and a product that I use several times per week. I've been using it for more than a decade now.

I use Blogger to provide SEO support for my online store and for some marketing support. Blogger is very good at creating easy, Google-legal external backlinks within the context of a legitimately informative article. I don't need to try and sneak external backlinks into various blog comments or do anything else that is unethical. Currently, I have over 80 posts focused on my online store. Each article is either about a unique product that my store provides or deals with an issue that is very specific to the products that I sell.

I have been using Blogger for many years, and from my personal experience, I can say that Blogger is an open-source website that anyone can use, and we don't need to have a paid domain to start blogging. Blogger also provides us access to the source code; hence with the slight knowledge of coding, we can customize our own website as per our own style and features. Even it provides a customized layout option where we can change the layout by just dragging the sections across the layout page. Blogger also gave us an opportunity to earn by making our website public and linking it to Adsense, by which my blogs can reach the vast majority of people. With Blogger, I have created my own educational website where people can learn topics related to Mechanical Engineering and clear their doubts.

When we were just starting out, we used Blogger to build our blog and ultimately begin reaching the audience we wanted. It was easy to use and we could learn it quickly. It was a great way to enter the blogging world and to start to get a grasp on what we are looking for as a business. It is easy to distribute information and even makes things a bit personalized without entering the scarier world of coding.

Blogger is used by the marketing department for purposes of recruitment. Through Blogger, our organization is able to share information and opportunities for both future client counties as well as job seekers. We are able to share what our program is about and tell the world wide web about our success stories, proving the effectiveness of our programs! We are able to reach a vast amount of people, even though Blogger is so easy to use it does not take a long time at all to actually post!

Blogger is currently being used at my organization in the design, PR, and Marketing departments. Other departments across the organization benefit from the use of Blogger and give ideas and bring stories to the marketing team to share and post, so in a way, we do all have our hands in on it. One of the main issues my company across the U.S. faces is a decline in participation after a certain age. Using Blogger and other social media help to show older girls that volunteering and becoming a Girl Scout is not just for little girls. We show fantastic programs and opportunities as well as results and scholarships the older girls receive to encourage others to join.

I used to use Blogger all the time in my personal and professional endeavors, whether for independent blog consulting, writing, or editing, or to recommend for companies I have been a part of. With the tools that exist today, Blogger is a great way for new writers and editors to break onto the scene if they have little coding experience, sure, and while Blogger has made some technological advances in the recent past, I can't say I would recommend it. I default to WordPress because it's easy to upgrade and transition into different editions, customize, etc. It's much better than Blogger and honestly not bad no matter your level of experience. You can learn and adapt.

Blogger is being used as a way to communicate to our agents about what is going on with training and other events within the company. The other use is as a tool to help update agents when new laws or company requirements dictate. This way they have a single location to go to keep updated and make sure they are up to date.

I have created a couple of blogs with Blogger for myself, my company and some friends. They were personal blogs and professional blogs. I have also written some tutorials about Blogger for the beginners; some have also been published in magazines.

To my personal point of view, Blogger is definitively the best choice when you have absolutely no technical skill, you have no domain name and no ISP (and you can’t afford or don’t want to pay for it)… and you want to be online in just a couple of minutes. It is easy to use and it offers all the required features for free! What more could you ask for?!

Blogger is also perfect for small businesses as you can easily and very quickly create a website. Blogger is mainly known as a blog solution for creating post articles which are published chronologically, but it also allows you to create static pages which are organized and you can access them thru a menu, as in a regular website! You can use one of the multiple templates that come with Blogger or customize your pages (you can also import templates designed with Artisteer).

Blogger is used as a publishing platform for SEO clients when WordPress or other similar platforms have been excluded as an option (for one reason or another). It isn't very common for us to recommend or use Blogger for our clients because, typically, it doesn't make sense in most business cases.

I personally use Blogger for my own professional development as part of the creative team. It allows me to keep track of my thought process when designing new brochures, flyers and especially new logos. It also allows me to have a digital portfolio of work going back to my time in college as well as the first few internships I had once I graduated.

I use Blogger for several blog sites I've created. I've written a poetry blog, a computer support blog, a vent your frustrations blog and building a few more. I've enjoyed working with BlogSpot and using it both professionally and personally. I am building a BlogSpot for computer users who have no solid resources to fix their own computers and have to pay so much money to get simple issues resolved.
