You have likely used Blogger before to create a blog, especially your first blog. Many students will nod their heads as they read this. Brings back good memories. There is a large blogging community. Some blog to share their opinions, while others blog to make money. Many of these people depend on Blogger to help them. Blogger Day celebrates all that Blogger is!
Blogger is a blogging service. Although it was initially developed by PyraLabs, Google purchased it in 2003. Blogger sites are common as blogspot.com is the subdomain. Many people have their own domains, so not all Blogger sites will be ending with this subdomain. You can have up to 100 blogs per account on the platform. This means that you will never run out of blogs to create.
Let’s take a look at the history of Blogger. Pyra Labs launched Blogger on 23 August 1999. It is the first tool that was solely dedicated to publishing blogs. Blogger is often credited with popularizing the blog format. In 2003, Google bought Blogger for terms not disclosed. Google gave Blogger premium features for free. This was one of the most important changes made during this transition. Picasa was purchased by Google in 2004. In 2004, Google made the move to integrate Picasa with Blogger. This was significant because it allowed Blogger users to upload photos to their blogs.
Blogger’s 2004 redesign was quite significant. A variety of new features were introduced, including comments, posting via email, commenting, individual archive pages for posts and templates that conform to web standards. Blogger was transferred to Google’s servers in 2007. It was ranked 16 on a list that included top 50 domains based on the number of unique users. It’s quite impressive!
Although there have not been any scuffles between the companies, it is widely believed that Blogger and WordPress are the leaders in blogging. With new players in the blogging industry, and many bloggers focusing on social media integrations such as Instagram and Facebook, the landscape has changed. Blogger and WordPress are the industry’s matriarchs, having achieved enough in the past years.
We have seen Blogger’s popularity drop in recent years. It powers less than 1% of the web. WordPress is, however, a very popular platform. Blogger entered the market several years before WordPress was born. Because of this, WordPress holds a special place within many people’s hearts. Traditionalists often feel a strong connection to the platform that helped make blogging what it is today. We celebrate it every day!
There are many differences between the two platforms in terms of what they offer. WordPress offers more options and is therefore the best choice for anyone looking for a complete blogging solution. Blogger on the other side has fewer features but it’s a simpler platform so you can just get started writing right away.
Blogger Day can be observed in a variety of ways. This is a simple task. You only need to create an account at Blogger. Then, head to the left and you’ll see a Down Arrow. From here, click New Blog.
