Google tweaks their blogging tool

Having only had my blog for about five days, I can’t remember what I did before it. Oh yeah, I annoyed my friends with all of my email telling them about cool things that they were only remotely interested in. Now I get to post them here and chat with people who actually care! Well, I’m a convert and I think that blogging will be huge (just like that new-fangled internet thing.) Google thought so to and purchased “Blogger” last year and they are revising it right now to make it easier. I have not compared their site to Blogware or any of the others. Can anybody point me to a good comparison?

  1. I’m sure that once the flurry of “hey, look at the new guy!” wears off, there will be some Blogger vs. TypePad vs. Blogware reviews (these are the [only?] three hosted blogging platforms).

    I just checked out my account and it is still active (woo-hoo! blogging since Feb 2000!) so I’ll probably start a test BlogSpot account and perhaps even do a review or two myself.

  2. i will start a blogspot blog too

    but i can tell you some of things that Blogware has that free Blogspot blogs don’t:

    1. RSS generation, Atom will be great but for now it is a bug 🙂 not a feature

    2. photos, free blogspot blogs don’t support

    photos

    3. disk space

    4. flexible categories – Blogware’s bubbling up (posts in sub categories bubble up to higher level categories by default)

    5. email notification for comments and for new posts by category – something very flexible that I believe only blogware does

    6. nested, threaded comments

    i am sure there are lots more

    hope that helps!
