Reviews A to Z - My experience with blogger

This April, I celebrate one year of my blogging. Also this May, my blog will complete seven years of existence in Blogosphere. In these seven years my blog has died and reborn thrice. At first it was called “scribbles”, which had info from college and other places, then it became “thoughts that matter not” and you know what it contained. Now the biggest and current avatar is called shades of life.

What is to be noted is my love for the blogger. I know that there are many who find other portals better but as the oldest blogging platform, blogger has its own advantages.

1. Constant updates and troubleshoots – in my seven years, I have seen this portal becoming more user friendly if anything else. The google team is constantly updating the system.

2. Easy manage – For a brief time, I tried to export my blog to another portal. Maybe my ignorance, but I found blogger easiest.

3. Wide range of tutorial – When I actively began blogging, for a phase I felt I was on my way to becoming techie. Blogger being one of the oldest platforms, there is a wide database of tutorial available.

4. Response time – Blogger gained my ultimate appreciation when I sent feedback once about my problem. My blog had become unlisted and it was sorted within hours.



Although there are few limitations with blogger, my overall experience with blogger is thumbs up.

  1. Blogger is a pretty good platform, but there are definitely limitations, especially for those who want to be in total control of their websites. It's certainly more flexible than the free version of Wordpress, in that you are allowed to use flash and javascript. :)

  2. B for Blogger - Lovely. Blogger is comfortable and convenient as Debbie said. However, I prefer WordPress more as a techie myself :P

  13. I like Blogger but it's all I've ever used. However, when I visit WP blogs, I'm always impressed with the LOOK, but typically I run into problems with leaving a comment. That might be whatever template someone chose, I don't know.
