Playing with Blogger/RadioUserland

I’m currently playing with Blogger because of two things:

  1. Write The Web recently asked the question, “Where are all the Blogger clones?” Which pretty much suggests that it’s so darn cool, why aren’t there a million copies.
  2. Blogger recently made headlines because they asked for donations (via PayPal) for a new server or servers and garnered some $3,600 in the first day.

I’m also playing with Radio Userland because I want to see what their version of end-user publishing looks like. My initial take is that it looks damn confusing. I’ve played with it a while and it has some nifty features but unless it is made 100% simpler most users would stay far far away from it.
