Blogging can be a hobby. Blogging can also be a career. The most popular blogging platforms are probably WordPress and Google's Blogger. I've tried both and I use Blogger for a variety of reasons. Well, Google recently announced that they now have a new template designer for Blogger. You can work with 15 new templates. You can have access to hundreds of background images from iStockphoto. You can easily create one-, two-, and three-column layouts for each template.
