Why use blogger?

If you’re reading this, you’ve already figure out my preference for blogging is using Google’s blogger. There are other good options out there, including TypePad and WordPress, so why Blogger over these other two? For starters, blogger is very easy. If you can send an email, you can do a blog post. Plus, many people already have a gmail account which makes it easy for them to comment on your Blogger blog.

It’s also very easy to set up a custom domain name. When you set up your blog, Google will check the availability of your preferred name and add Blogspot to it. If you want a custom domain name which will remove the “blogspot”, you can get one for around $10/year. This will allow you to set up your blog with a preferred name. But.. if you’re just starting out, go ahead and set up your free account to give it a try!
