Just to prove blogger‬ can be a clean, simple blogging‬ tool that can do the job for a small company:

There are so many different ways to blog. In our opinion the top two packages are Blogger and WordPress. There is very little to chose between them – WordPress is more adaptable but blogger (if you have your own domain name) does really well in searches.
–  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 blogspot.com. Blogs can also be hosted in the registered custom domain of the blogger (like http://www.example.com). So blogspot.com domain publishings will be redirected to the custom domain. A user can have up to 100 blogs per account.

Blogger was ranked 16 on the list of top 50 domains in terms of number of unique visitors in 2007 and since 2003 there have been several redesigns and upgrades to the layouts and dashboard, making this an easy to use platform for the novice blogger.
– This package can be easily adapted to become a content management system and delivers a mighty bang when used to optimize a website. WordPress appeared in 2003, with a few users who were looking for a way to enhance the typography of writing on the Web. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

– Development of Tumblr began in 2006 during a two-week gap between contracts at David Karp’s software consulting company, Davidville (housed at Karp’s former internship with producer/incubator Fred Seibert’s Frederator Studios which was located a block from Tumblr’s current headquarters). Karp had been interested in tumblelogs (short-form blogs) for some time and was waiting for one of the established blogging platforms to introduce their own tumblelogging platform.

Yahoo + Tumblr = 2013. Tumblr has always been the wolf in sheep’s clothing – making other blogging platforms take note. Since 2007 its profile has slowly grown and raised a few admiring eyebrows. The product is a good one but what will happen when the brand gets smothered with Yahoo advertising will people ditch the brand?

With a press conference due in New York’s Times Square, just a couple of miles from Tumblr’s headquarters, nobody expects Mayer will turn up empty-handed. According to the Wall Street Journal on Sunday evening, the Yahoo board have agreed to pay $1.1bn for Tumblr and will let it continue to operate as an independent business. 

Yahoo declined to comment before the announcement, but pointed out that it would be streamed live. That is something the company has previously only done (in audio) for its quarterly financial results. For Yahoo, capturing the white-hot blogging site could catapult it back into the top flight of contenders in a web world that has become hugely more complicated since it was set up in March 1995 – before Google and nearly a decade before Facebook.

This rise in popularity of Tumblr has encouraged WordPress to implement a strategy of informing WordPress users that they are quite happy for dual users to import Tumblr blog entries into WordPress via one of the Tumblr to WXR conversion tools that are available on the web.

Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
