    If you are referring to a blogger account, yes I have. Although I never gave it the attention my domain's WP blogs get I really did not see it offer much in the way of traffic and revenues.

    I was using it later for a somewhat bookmark site posting snippets of the actual blog posts and updated it several times a day and still never took off. I gave up on it 6-8 months ago.

    I think it goes back to "you get what you pay for" and a free blog is not going to rank as well as a "true blog".

    I pondered helping my wife to set a a blogger account as she wants to do a travel review blog but just went ahead and bought her a domain and set up some affiliate accounts for her to get started. For the cost of a domain I think it will do much better.

    The blog on slotsjam.com is a blogger blog. However google changed it so that you can not host it on you own site now so we are just trailing out a word press blog hosting it on one of our other sites and if that goes well as I am sure it will then we will probably move the slotsjam over to be a wordpress blog at some point too as I would rather the blog be hosted on our own site.

    Default blog

    Setting up a Blogger account takes three easy steps.
    Create an account, name your blog, and choose a template. You can host multiple blogs with the same account name, so you only need to do that part once.
    This way you could separate your professional blog about your business from your personal blog about dogs, for instance.

    As it is free then why not give it a try? Write your own posts and then all it costs you is time really.

    I thought I would just chime back in here and say arrrrgh Googles blogger is giving us more grief.

    If anyone is considering using either blogger or wordpress heres what you need to do.

    USE WORD PRESS EVERY TIME.

    As far as I can think the ONLY reason you would use blogger would be if you wanted to use it as kind of its own website (maybe that could be useful for some kind of link building campaign of sorts, but other than that wordpress wins on all counts every single time (and if you wanted to you could set wordpres up on a different site to your main site thus nullifying bloggers ONLY possible advantage (and I am being very generous calling it an advantage as it is one of the key reasons I am going to be switching away from it)).

    Our tests with word press show it works great, has lots of plugins and there are clearly a lot of people around who know how to make it do things so if you get stuck when you ask for help you will be bound to get someone who can tell you whatever you need to know.

    It used to be a super SEO tool when you could host it on your own domain.
    I could throw a blog up and in 48 hours be indexed with multiple pages. Unfortunately those days are gone.

    WP is the way to go these days. However make sure you keep on top of updates including themes and plugs in. Also never let WP install your core updates. The automated plugins don't seem to be a risk but the WP updates I've heard from too many people getting hacked within 24 hours. So I do these manually.

    The other thing is to just set-up a ftp access for the time your allowing the auto updates then trash the ftp account. But personally I'd rather ftp the WP core update manually.

    I also have a cron job set to backup the DB every 24 hours.


    Cheers

    Blogger f***ers have taken mine offline. Halfway inclined to take the bastards to court.

    Probably did me a favour though, as the change casinogod mentions did a lot of damage, and now I'm at least forced to seek an alternative.

    ive got an old blogger site out there that i haven't looked at in a couple years, but i still get several hits a day on it and an occassional conversion. i use wordpress too, but blogger was easy to set up and get started with, even as a novice.

    Hey, if you gets the occasional hit and conversion why do you not log onto the account, get some new posts up and continue using it?

    I like Blogger but I've had better SEO experience with WP.

    Are you talking about the Google Webmaster Blog Central? Aside from Matt Cutts blog, I usually get additional information here about SEOs and other things.

    Blogger is pretty much dead these days. Our company was smart and switched over to wordpress before it tanked.
