What is a Blogger or BlogSpot?

First of all Blogger or BlogSpot both are the same, don’t be confused.

Blogger is a free publishing platform owned by the ‘Google’ company.

On August 23, 1999, Blogger was launched by Pyra Labs.

Then in 2003 Blogger was bought by Google.

Blogger is free to use, it provides you with free hosting and subdomain of blogspot.com.

Blogger supports Google’s AdSense service so that you can make money from running a blog.

It allows you to choose from different templates, and then customize them.

It also allows you to add your own theme.

A user can have up to 100 blogs each Google account.

Difference Between Blogger and Blogspot

Blogger (www.blogger.com) is a free publishing platform owned by the Google company.

Blogspot (www.blogspot.com) is a free domain service provider owned by the same Google company.

That’s why Blogger is free to use because it provides hosting and subdomain for your blog.
