Overall Satisfaction with Blogger
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 free as most of the CMS are, and you can find thousands of gadgets for free.
- Blogger offers a lot of templates which can be customized. You can also specify a different template when the blog/website is displayed on a mobile device to be sure that the display will be responsive.
- It is easy to change the page layout. You only have to drag and drop the elements of the page. When you are done, save. That’s all!
- You can easily manage the comments from your readers.
- When you have a blog or a website, of course you are interested in knowing if you have readers, which articles they prefer, who they are (their country, the operating system and web browser they use…). All you have to do is click on the statistics menu for viewing all these valuable data.
- It is always difficult to speak about cons when something is free. I would say that Blogger is ideal for personal blogs and very small businesses. If you want to design a website with multiple web pages, then I would suggest you to have a look at WordPress.
- The good point is that Blogger allows us to have dedicated blogs online in just a fraction of time!
