Why Use Blogger Blog for your small, crafting, business?

There are many blogging platforms to choose from, but the 2 most talked about are  WP (Wordpress) And Blogger.

I cut my teeth way back in 2006  on Blogger and still use it today.

I did, for a short while use WP but it was far too complicated and my life was too short to learn about all the different plug-ins and options and I reverted back to Blogger.

A little note here: I also use the blog that comes with my website, constructing the blog in Blogger then copying the post into y on-line shop.

2 posts for half the work. 

The main reasons I use Blogger are

It’s super easy to use
It’s colours and templates can be customised
It can quickly and easily by converted to a website by buying a custom domain – If you buy your domain from Go Daddy it will cost you less than £10 a year (Currently less than £10 for 2 years!) for a website! What’s more you’ll be building it yourself!
You can use a address (Unlike WP where you have to have a .com)
I know it like the back of my hand
It instantly uploads any changes you make
It’s clean and clear for any reader to navigate
It’s designed and made by Google so therefore it’s great for SEO
Images are uploaded to Google Images almost straight away, which means you can easily be found.
I like the no nonsense approach
It fully integrates with all your other Google apps – Google+, google Maps, Google Docs and Google Drive to name but a few.
It’s FREE! (It’s the Yorkshire in me that made my type that in CAPS!)

Why you shouldn’t take any notice of me

Of course, there’s no reason why you should believe any word of this and there are many pro businesses which will completely disagree and snort and laugh when you tell them you use blogger, however for a plain, simple, straightforward, no nonsense blog and website with no need to know anything more than simple word, then this is perfect for crafting businesses in particular!

Here’s a pro that uses both and why he likes Blogger

I hope this has got you all fired up.
to create a blog in Blogger go to

You'll need a Google Account but if you haven't already got one, you'll be taken step-by-step through the whole process.
It's easy.... honest! 

By the way... If you have a Blogger Blog you can transfer it to WP at a later date if you so wish..... and vice versa. 

Warm wishes& Happy Crafting,
