Blogger's Makeover

I'm a blog minimalist by nature, but even Google's blogspot blogger was too simple for me to recommend to my clients. . . until now.

Most people recommend Wordpress as their blog of choice due to its customization abilities and great plug ins. BUT I never do because I want them to have something simple enough to update and change around themselves.

And even though Typepad has a monthly fee, I used to recommend it because it offered things most other blogs didn't, such as built in analytics and Seo optimization. But blogger's stepped it up, finally. And it's free!

Here are the best things about the new Blogger:
  • Ability to split a post and create a "read more" link
  • Big white space to write in, not a tiny window
  • Ability to upload all pictures for the blog at one time
  • Ability to schedule posts
  • Built in analytics
 It's not perfect, but it's definitely one of my favorite blog platforms now, and the updates have allowed me to start using it again myself!
