Blogger is (as the name implies!) an easy way to get going with a blog, whether for yourself, your organisation or even your community project.

Blogging is about more than just putting your thoughts on the web. It's about connecting with and hearing from anyone who reads your work. With Blogger, you control who can read and write to your blog — let just a few friends or the entire world see what you have to say!

Blogger Comments let anyone, anywhere, offer feedback on your posts. You can choose whether you want to allow comments on a post-by-post basis and you can delete comments that you don't like.

Access Controls let you decide who can read and who can write to your blog. You can use a group blog with multiple authors as a communication tool for small teams, families and other groups. As a single author, you can create a private online space for collecting news, links and ideas, to keep to yourself or to share with as many readers as you want.

Case studies

  •  

    Mohamed from Southern Housing Group talks about how they have used Blogger.

Benefits

  • It's free
  • Very easy to use and get started
  • You can log in using an existing Gmail account

Considerations

  • If you're looking for more than a blog this probably isn't the tool for you. Try Wordpress or similar.

josephinewhiteford I've had an acount on Blogger before, and although I do not use it often anymore; I always found it easy to use. As you can have up to 20 pages it made it easy to organise work and write more, giving more help despite the blog was always the main page.

netbuddies Blogger is quite flexible and probably, for non-technical people, easier to use than WordPress. You can have up to 20 pages in a single site, but the home page is always the Blog. We use it for community (eg village) websites with multiple authors, and it works OK. It's also fairly easy to assign it to a specific domain name so that it looks more professional.
