What can you use the app for?

Blogger gives internet users a place to start their own blog. The site provides the user with a large collection of eye-catching blog templates that range from light and elegant to dark and sleek. The user can also review up to the minute statistics for their blog to see visitor activity. Members can explore the blogs created by others in the Blogger community. The user interface is relatively easy to master, allowing users to quickly post updates or make edits as necessary. Users can create a Blogger URL and change it whenever they want or apply their own domain name to the blog. Users can earn income from their blog through Google AdSense, which integrates with Blogger. The follower widget is included so the blogger can give their readers a way to follow their content updates and blog changes. Comment features are also included so users can interact with their readers. Mobile phone updates have recently been added as well as page specific features. Blogger is available in over 40 languages, including English, Arabic, French, German, Dutch, Hebrew, Hindi, Greek, Serbian, Swedish, Spanish, Malay and Hungarian.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Blogger was founded in August of 1999. The original Blogger was named Pyra Labs. In February of 2003, Google acquired Pyra Labs and renamed it with its current moniker. Today, many people use Blogger to host their blogs.

What are the differences to other apps?

Blogger offers a number of features, although none are terribly unique. This isn’t necessarily the fault of Blogger. It is primarily because there are many competing applications that do the same thing and offer similar features because they are effective. Blogger stands out for some users because the site offers mobile blog updates to its users.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Blogger website uses a dark blue and orange color scheme, highlighted by the stylish “B” square logo. The user dashboard presents a list of all of the user’s current blogs as well as links to the user’s account and the help area in the upper, right hand corner. The user can jump right to the post editor, comments area, settings, design, statistics or the monetize features.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can sign in to Blogger using their Google credentials. Those who do not have a Google account will have to create one to create a Blogger account. This can be done by clicking the blue “Get Started” link along the right hand side of the Blogger homepage. The registration form on the following page asks the user for an email address, password, display name, date of birth and word verification.

What does it cost to use the application?

Blogger invites all visitors to sign up and start a blog for free. There are no subscription fees or other charges to create or manage a blog. The user is given access to all the basic features and can edit and post as often as they like.
