Dear diary... JACKPOT!

AdvantagesFree, customisable, easy to use.

DisadvantagesSlow at times, hard to customise without a bit of tech knowledge, no criteria for browsing.

"When talking about the phenomenon of blogging, most people instantly think of people writing an online diary or weblog. This is where the name 'blog' originated from: web (from the World Wide Web) and log (as in keeping a log). It's not the hardest mouthful of words to pronounce, but it's been shortened to blog all the same. Since the first 'blogs' appeared in 1994, the act of recording thoughts and experiences online has grown. Today, blogging ..." Read review

I blog therefore I am

AdvantagesEasy to use, intuitive interface

DisadvantagesCan very occasionally act up.

"...myself a cuppa, I'll let blogger.com themselves explain... "A blog is a web page made up of usually short, frequently updated posts that are arranged chronologically—like a what's new page or a journal. The content and purposes of blogs varies greatly—from links and commentary about other web sites, to news about a company/person/idea, to diaries, photos, poetry, mini-essays, project updates, even fiction." A place where you can say exactly ..." Read review

Blogging rocks! Review with images

AdvantagesBlogs are windows on other people's worlds..

DisadvantagesNot everyone out there has an interesting world!

"Bloggers stand up. (or sit down under a bedspread in Leeds, in an office in Washington, in a bombed out IT centre in Iraq or from your hospital bed…) This is real life, this is the world as seen from you lot out there - (y)our loves, losses, joy and pain. Blogging is the new black/brown/white/yellow/green (delete as appropriate) Blogs (or weblogs) are open diaries full of views, opinions, pictures, music and links to other sites. Hey some ..."

Blogging - for beginners. Review with images

AdvantagesSimple, free, nice XML-RPC

DisadvantagesRelies on central server, lack of features

"...hosting, in the form of Blogger.com . Blogger doesn't actually offer hosting on it's own site, but uses a service called Blog*Spot, which used to be seperate but is now owned by Blogger/Google. You wouldn't notice apart from the fact hosted weblogs have an address like blogname.blogspot.com . ~Introduction~ As you may know, I've had a site for many years now, but I felt this blogging thing was getting popular, and I better join in, so I ..."

You Did WHAT Today?

AdvantagesFreedom of Speech, you can share your thoughts with the world

DisadvantagesEveryone has an opinion, you might not want to read them all!

"...to me, eventually settling on Blogger.com to host my daily thoughts. I am one of those who uses a blog to diarise my day, though I do use it to share my thoughts on certain topics as well. So why did I choose Blogger? One of the deciding factors was Google's involvement, allowing them to integrate blogging capabilities into their photographic software Picasa and their Internet Explorer and Mozilla toolbars, thus offering bloggers the opportunity ..."

I've Got One, Have You?

AdvantagesA great way to make your own mark online, cheaply and easily

DisadvantagesNone....... YET!

"I guess we all dream about having our own little piece of space on the internet. It's nothing to do with fame; it's just somewhere that might just be there long after we have gone, or something someone might stumble upon. You could call it our own creative space. Though they were not necessarily know as Blogs from conception almost 15 years ago, these little pieces of Internet space have grown more and more in popularity. There are certain blogs ..."

How to Tell the World What You Ate for Breakfast

Advantagesfree, easy to use, instant community, write about anything and everything

Disadvantagesmight embarass your relatives

"...One of the best-known is blogger.com which is owned by Google. Signing up took about two minutes of my time, and I was pleased to learn that I could choose exactly how much of my information was to be made public. First name: yes. Surname, date of birth, email address: no. Since I planned to write about my daily life living abroad, and let my relatives in the UK know about it, I had no wish to be totally anonymous; however it's entirely possible ..." Read review

I like BLOGGING, yes I like to BLOG…

AdvantagesBRILLIANT

DisadvantagesNot at this price, i.e. FREE

"I like BLOGGING, yes I like to BLOG… (Replace BLOG with TRUCK, and you can find the original as a joke song from Not the Nine O’Clock News, trivia fans…) When writing about BLOGGER, it’s inevitable that you will kick off the review with a pathetic pun, because it’s just TOO tempting to weigh in with the standard one liner, so please excuse me for my own little lapse in taste as a starter for 10… BLOG – type in define:blog in the Google search ..."

Blogging made Easy!

Advantageseasy to set up, user friendly, well-organised, easy to update and manage your blog

DisadvantagesNone

"I started using Blogger mid-last year when I started writing a blog of my own about the various ways I was discovering to make money online. Blogger is FREE to sign up and I think accepts users all over the world. Blogger is owned by Google so if you already have a google account, you can log into Blogger using your gmail account details or go to Account>Blogger on your google homepage.. You can also sign up to blogger using another email provider ..." Read review

Well I'll be 'Blogger'd

Advantagesfree or paid for service, easy to use, one click publishing

Disadvantagesfree service sometimes unavailable at peak times

"...yourself an Internet tool from blogger.com that once you use it you will wonder how on earth you managed without it. It is called a ‘Blog’. Yes, I am serious. It is called a Blog because it is a Web Log. (Say it fast. Weblog…we..blog) Get it? Ok. I really believe that it can be used and appreciated by internet newbies and experienced webmasters alike. Those of you who don’t have a website please read on because you don’t need to build a website ..." Read review

Great FREE way to get information disseminated on the internet.

AdvantagesFree way of getting info on the web.

DisadvantagesNone - but it does get addictive!

"---Why I Do This--- I started off as a complete novice - not even knowing what Blogger was. I was organising a school reunion and asked my son if there was a way I could keep in touch with everyone without having to contact them all separately - so he set me up with Blogger and left me to it. It must be easy as I was soon able to find my way around quite easily and learn how it worked without being shown. ..." Read review

You ciaoers are going to LOVE this

Advantageseasy to use and FREE

Disadvantagesadverts on blog ... but there's no such thing as a free lunch

"...at all. The lovely chaps at blogger.com have made it all simple and, more importantly FREE. By registering on the web site you can create your own blog, select a template from a huge gallery of styles and post and publish you site within minutes. Dead easy. The FREE web-based application lets you do basic HTML formatting (bold, italics, underline) as well as inserting hyperlinks to other web pages. What’s more if you want to have a group ..."

Real Bloggers use Blogger.com

AdvantagesFantastic service for free.

DisadvantagesNone

"...need is Blogger.com. Starting off with Blogger.com is simplicity itself. Go to blogger.com and it will ask you if you want to sign up as a Blogger? "Why, yes, thanks! Don't mind if I do!" Blogger takes you by the hand, but very gently, and helps you to set up your first blog. It also allows you to add on lots of other stuff, too! On my blog I have a clock, and various other things that make it a bit more interesting for people to visit. And ..." Read review

Blog your head off

AdvantagesA good hobby, can earn you money

DisadvantagesCould be addictive

"Blogger is an online blogging (basically a diary) site owned and run by Google. You can set up an account quickly and for free very easily. You can create multiple blogs on your one account and they can be about anything you like! (Obvious restrictions apply.) I advise you to blog about things you're passionate about, it makes the content mush easier to write and it just looks so much better when it's relaly from the heart, it's much more powerful. ..."

Confessions Of A Blogaholic

Advantagesgood hobby, easy to use, generate profit

Disadvantagesaddictive

"Originally, I did not understand the concept of blogging and thought anyone who did it was genius to be able to work out the complex websites. Although, recently I found about Blogger which in my opinion is the cream of the crop. I have been blogging my little brain off for the past 4 months now and found it very easy. There are many blogs set up specifically to teach you how to use the websites many features. I have to admit - you may need to use ..." Read review
