Do you guys follow any blogs that don’t run on Blogger? Ever considered using something else?
I’m curious. You see, there’s a ton of blogging tools around, lots of CMS (content management systems). WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Anchor, you name it. They’re all really cool and offer way better functionality than Blogger, yet I stick to it.
The biggest advantage Blogger got over all the competitors is the fact that bloggers using Blogger can easily follow each other’s blogs, and have a nice feed of the posts. Either systems offer no such functionality (as far as I’m aware), and that’s where I instantly stop thinking about switching.
Blogger offers a great way to keep in touch and stay up to date with fellow bloggers. Other than that, it doesn’t require a webserver and is extremely easy to set up, even to the most itecherate (illiterate, but for technology) of people. That’s its charm, really. That, and the huge community it has due to that.
What are your thought on blogging systems other than Blogger?
