Long ago I tried Blogger, twice, and both times found it very lacking. But lately I’ve been using it and find that it’s *extremely* smooth. Like most Google properties, this thing just keeps getting better. The plugins and integrations work very well, and the interface? Well, let’s just say it’s as slick as other Google interfaces. Oh, and by the way, did I mention that it’s free? That’s definitely not the deciding factor (I look at total cost of ownership for tech decisions), but it works great, and instant SEO results.
Why don’t you give it a whirl?
