Blogger New Features

Customize your template
  • Create the blog you’ve always wanted with new page elements and font and color options.
  • Drag and drop page elements to customize your blog’s design in a snap.

Create a private blog

Want to share your thoughts with just family and friends, not the whole world? The new Permissions tab in Settings makes it easy to control who can view and contribute to your blog.

  • Add authors so multiple people can post to your blog.
  • Choose who can view your blog just by adding their email address.

Fresh new templates

We’ve added a bunch of new templates created by some of the web’s most talented designers.

More feed options

We’ve added some additional feed options for our more advanced users. Now you can have a feed for all the comments on your blog, and even individual feeds for all the comments on each separate post. We’ve also added support for the RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0 standards.

Updated Dashboard

The new Dashboard makes it easier to check your blog’s activity and gives you one-click access to the most common blog management tasks.

Instant publishing

Say goodbye to the dreaded “Publishing…” spinner. Now, when you make a new post or change any of your settings, your blog is updated and changes go live immediately; you don’t have to remember to republish.
