Google’s Blogger platform is already set in stone as a classic platform for novice bloggers. The features it has makes it easy for just about anyone to start off their new blog within a couple of minutes. There are some downsides, like Google effectively owning your blog and all that is contained within in, but if you don’t need to worry about stuff like that, it’s a great place to start and get familiar with the inner-workings of a blogging career.
Some Benefits of Using Blogger
The BlogSpot blogging platform is easy to use and that’s why it’s still gathering an audience from across the world. There are templates you can freely implement on your blog in order to give it a specific look. While there are no plugins, the widgets provided by Blogger make up for the essential additional functionality you’d find through plugins on other blogging platforms.
You can also do a bit of HTML editing, but you don’t have access to FTP. You have a total of 1 GB of storage space available – more than an amateur blogger would need – but you can increase that space by connecting your Blogger account with your Google+.
