- It's hard to compare it to any one thing. But it does take the best of a lot of things and put them in one place. I love the integration with Picasa for starters.

This is easy to do using Ping.fm.if that is your concern you can do 2 things: 1, have the site under your own domain so it's easily transferred, and 2, when your publish content to your Blogger site, have it automatically double-posted to a 2nd, private-access blog on a different service such as a freeApr 24, 2012
