What Else You Can Do On Blogger.com?

Sure you know Blogger.com (soon it will be Google Blogs) to be a reliable blogging platform. I tried any platform out there and always came back to it. Reliable, hassle-free, customizable and free.

But David, from Confluent Forms LLC even uses Blogger sites for totally other purposes. It's just a logical thing, but if you never thought about that before. It can be a powerful site production tool. He gives some example. Check the whole article on blogger buzz for more.

You can do some amazing things with Blogger: " As a web development firm, Blogger provides us with a different value proposition. When we pitch a Blogger-based solution to a client we can provide services at a lower price point while still maintaining full creative freedom. I don’t need to set up a paid hosting account for my client, worry about security patches or upgrades, or be concerned about system uptime and availability. Finally, I can easily transfer ownership and management of the site to my client, or, continue to keep us both as co-administrators.

It can be hard to envision a platform’s potential from a list of features so here are a few examples of what we’ve achieved with Blogger.

I hope the examples above have opened your eyes to some of the possibilities of what you can do with your Blogger site, or maybe encourage you to give Blogger a try for your website solution. A longer, more in-depth version of this post is available on our blog. My company is lucky to have an exceptionally talented designer that isn’t afraid to push us, but even if you don’t have the ability to create an entirely new site template, perhaps this will encourage you to explore the underlying code of your site and to customize some of the small details to match your vision for your site.

Happy designing and coding!

David
