How Blogger Works

Author's Note

I've been running my own site for years using Wordpress and my own host, but had never tried Blogger. While it isn't quite as flexible or powerful as Wordpress, especially when you consider the thousands of plugins available for Wordpress, I was pretty impressed by Blogger. Incredibly easy to set up and get running, but plenty of depth if you're willing to dig in and customize it.
