Blogger (service)

blogger service unavailable error 503, blogger customer service
Blogger is a blog-publishing service that allows multi-user blogs with time-stamped entries It was developed by Pyra Labs, which was bought by Google in 2003 Generally, the blogs are hosted by Google at a subdomain of blogspotcom Blogs can also be hosted in the registered custom domain of the blogger like wwwexamplecom A user can have up to 100 blogs per account

Up until May 1, 2010, Blogger allowed users to publish blogs on other hosts, via FTP All such blogs had or still have to be moved to Google's own servers, with domains other than blogspotcom allowed via custom URLs Unlike WordPresscom, Blogger allows its users to use their own domain free of charge, while WordPresscom charges around $13 to use a custom domain Blogger cannot be installed on a web server One has to use DNS facilities to redirect a custom URL to a blogspot domain

History

On August 23, 1999, Blogger was launched by Pyra Labs As one of the earliest dedicated blog-publishing tools, it is credited for helping popularize the format In February 2003, Pyra Labs was acquired by Google under undisclosed terms The acquisition allowed premium features for which Pyra had charged to become free In October 2004, Pyra Labs' co-founder, Evan Williams, left Google In 2004, Google purchased Picasa; it integrated Picasa and its photo sharing utility Hello into Blogger, allowing users to post photos to their blogs

On May 9, 2004, Blogger introduced a major redesign, adding features such as web standards-compliant templates, individual archive pages for posts, comments, and posting by email On August 14, 2006, Blogger launched its latest version in beta, codenamed "Invader", alongside the gold release This migrated users to Google servers and had some new features, including interface language in French, Italian, German and Spanish In December 2006, this new version of Blogger was taken out of beta By May 2007, Blogger had completely moved over to Google-operated servers Blogger was ranked 16 on the list of top 50 domains in terms of number of unique visitors in 2007

On February 24, 2015, Blogger announced that as of late March it will no longer allow its users to post sexually explicit content, unless the nudity offers "substantial public benefit," for example in "artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts" On February 28, 2015, accounting for severe backlash from long-term bloggers, Blogger reversed its decision on banning sexual content, going back to the previous policy that allowed explicit images and videos if the blog was marked as "adult"

Redesign

As part of the Blogger redesign in 2006, all blogs associated with a user's Google Account were migrated to Google servers Blogger claims that the service is now more reliable because of the quality of the servers

Along with the migration to Google servers, several new features were introduced, including label organization, a drag-and-drop template editing interface, reading permissions to create private blogs and new Web feed options Furthermore, blogs are updated dynamically, as opposed to rewriting HTML files

In a version of the service called Blogger in Draft, new features are tested before being released to all users New features are discussed in the service's official blog In September 2009, Google introduced new features into Blogger as part of its tenth anniversary celebration The features included a new interface for post editing, improved image handling, Raw HTML Conversion, and other Google Docs-based implementations, including:

  • Adding location to posts via geotagging
  • Post time-stamping at publication, not at original creation
  • Vertical re-sizing of the post editor The size is saved in a per-user, per-blog preference
  • Link editing in compose mode
  • Full Safari 3 support and fidelity on both Windows and macOS
  • New Preview dialog that shows posts in a width and font size approximating what is seen in the published view
  • Placeholder image for tags so that embeds are movable in compose mode
  • New toolbar with Google aesthetics, faster loading time, and "undo" and "redo" buttons Also added was the full justification button, a strike-through button, and an expanded color palette

In 2010, Blogger introduced new templates and redesigned its website The new post editor was criticized for being less reliable than its predecessor

Available languages

Blogger is available in these languages: Arabic, Bengali, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Malayalam, Marathi, Norwegian, Oriya, Persian, Polish, Portuguese Brazil, Portuguese Portugal, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu Vietnamese Nepali, FarashiBemba,Tonga,Tumbuka and Cewa

Country-specific blogger addresses

Starting in February 2013, Blogger began integrating user blogs with multiple country-specific URLs For example, exampleuserblognameblogspotcom would be automatically redirected to exampleuserblognameblogspotca in Canada, exampleuserblognameblogspotcouk in the United Kingdom Blogger explained that by doing this they could manage the blog content more locally so if there was any objectionable material that violated a particular country's laws they could remove and block access to that blog for that country through the assigned ccTLD while retaining access through other ccTLD addresses and the default Blogspotcom URL However it should be noted that if a blog using a country-specific URL was removed it is still technically possible to access the blog through Google's No Country Redirect override by entering the URL using the regular Blogspotcom address and adding /ncr after the com

Available designs

Blogger allows its users to choose from various templates and then customize them Users may also choose to create their own templates using CSS The new design template, known as "Dynamic View", was introduced on 31 August 2011 with Dynamic Views being introduced on 27 September 2011 It is built with AJAX, HTML5, and CSS3 The time for loading is 40 percent shorter than traditional templates, and allows user to present blog in seven different ways: classic, flipcard, magazine, mosaic, sidebar, snapshot, and timeslide Readers still have the option to choose preferable views when the blog owner has set a default view Some of the widgets eg, Labels, Profile, Link List, Subscription Links, Followers and Blog Archive etc are available for Dynamic Views; other templates are chosen by the blogger

In April 2013, Blogger updated its HTML template editor that has some improvements to make it easy for the users to edit the blog's source code The editor was updated with syntax highlight, number line and jump-to-widget button for ease of editing the code

For over half a year dynamic views users were suffering from a bug causing custom CSS and page navigation often not to load properly This happened because a JavaScript routine rendered the page before it was loaded A blogger user fixed the template and published the fix

Integration

  • The Google Toolbar has a feature called "BlogThis!" which allows toolbar users with Blogger accounts to post links directly to their blogs
  • "Blogger for Word" is an add-in for Microsoft Word which allows users to save a Microsoft Word document directly to a Blogger blog, as well as edit their posts both on- and offline As of January 2007, Google says "Blogger for Word is not currently compatible with the new version of Blogger", and they state no decision has been made about supporting it with the new Blogger However, Microsoft Office 2007 adds native support for a variety of blogging systems, including Blogger
  • Blogger supports Google's AdSense service as a way of generating revenue from running a blog
  • Blogger also started integration with Amazon Associates in December 2009, as a service to generate revenue It was not publicly announced, but by September 2011 it appeared that all integration options had been removed and that the partnership had ended
  • Windows Live Writer, a standalone app of the Windows Live suite, publishes directly to Blogger
  • Blogger can be optionally integrated with Google+
  • Google+ comments can be integrated with blogger comments
  • The Campaigns tab in Blogger dashboard links to Adwords making it easier to create ads
  • You may create and add HTML site map static page to your blogger BlogSpot blogs using Blogger JSON Feed API which helps both website live visitors as well as Search Engine bots

Blogger on mobile devices

Blogger has launched mobile applications for users with mobile devices Users can post and edit blogs, and also share photos and links on Blogger through their mobile devices Not only advanced mobile devices, such as smartphones, are being considered, since users can also post blogs via traditional cell phones by SMS and MMS

Screenshot of Blogger app on iOS

The major two mobile operating systems that Blogger focuses on are Android and iOS Blogger allow users to edit blogs anywhere through the app and either publish the blogs or save them as drafts Quick navigation from posts and drafts is accessible from a list Users can attach photos by taking a picture with a Blogger app or selecting pictures from their photo galleries Sharing current locations on posts is also possible by tabbing My Location bar and adding locations Users can also share photos and links directly to Blogger

Blogger also provides dynamic mobile views for the blogging compatibility with mobile devices and smart phones They enhance the readability accuracy on these smart devices, but editing a blog on the blogger app remains an open issue for the users
