Blogger is not well, and

Blogger is not well, and I, for one, am worried. Blogger provides an excellent service – ok, it has its ups and downs, but overall, it’s pretty good. But I’m worried that if the service appears weak, people will switch to alternatives like Greymatter, or even Atomz Publish, and then the commercial future of Blogger will be *really* weak. I’m surprised that Ev didn’t see this coming – as a marketer, I hold to the basic tenet that if you have a good idea, some bugger will come along and do it better. The trick is to do it better yourself before they have a chance. In the case of Blogger, the “do it better” trick is to do it *and* make money.
But then, if even the big players on the web can’t make money, what hope is there?
