Want to start a Blogger account?

Several have expressed an interest in their own Blogger account. I personally like Blogger better, but won't try to sway or influence anyone to make the switch. It's a personal decision each person must make themselves.

If you're interested, Blogger is (in my humble opinion) just as easy to use as 360. It is different. One of the major differences is that Blogger is about Blogging, not networking like 360. As far as I know, there is no way to invite friends. You must manually send your friends your Blogger link. I wish there was a way to 'invite' and 'add' people like 360, but as far as I know, there isn't. Yes, you can "follow" a blog, but to actually send an email 'invite' - can't do. Someone else may know of a way to send an email invite, but I cannot find any such links.

Another major difference is the ability to design your own page. If you don't want to list your favorite music, movies, TV shows, etc. you don't need to. If you want one profile picture or 10 profile pictures, it's up to you to design your own page. To change your background, you have to use HTML. I've not figured that out yet, but Sarah has that figured out - direct your questions to her. If you're familiar with myspace, you may already be familiar with HTML, however, I've currently not mastered the ability to change my page background using HTML.

Also, you can get quite a bit of help here: http://www.youtube.com/BloggerHelp. Video tutorials for the newbies... doesn't get much easier than that!

Anyways, as I said, I'm not trying to influence anyone or change your minds, etc. Just thouht I'd post this to help those out that were asking.
