Advantages and Disadvantages of Blogger

Now I am no where near new to blogging, having made over 7 blogs for all my different hobbies and classes but there are some things that I just don't understand with blogging.

Here are the advantages and Disadvantages in my opinion of Blogger:

Pros:

  • Easy and fast to post
  • Fairly dummy proof to start up (gets more complicated when you change layouts)
  • Visually appealing
  • User friendly
  • Can post pictures, videos and links
  • A google app
  • URL does not tend to be too long

Cons:
  • You cannot upload documents so if using this site for a classroom, you need to have additional software to help you with that
  • you are limited in the layout changes and designs do not always work out so they take time to master
  • You are limited to the columns on the side and cannot always place items where you want them to go
  • Pages which you can make are fairly 2D and cannot do much with them


Some Bloggers in the technology world who I have bookmarked their sites are:
ICT 4 Kids
Brian Aspinall's Blog
Free Technology for Teachers
