because it only really starts after the second one.
I gotta tell you, I find blogger to be pretty close to the killer blogging app. The built-in templates look cool, it's configurable, it's easy to use, it's free. It fits right in with Flickr. You wind up with a reasonable URL that's easy for your friends to remember. Not that I don't appreciate iWeb and its attempt to do something more interesting and/or different, but I think it's too late. Blogger (and probably some others that I don't use) have already defined what blogs look like.
Oh yeah, iWeb will never compete with blogger. However, Blogger is used by folks like us. iWeb will get folks who would otherwise NEVER blog to look into it. People will use iWeb who don't know what blogger is. And maybe down the road Blogger will allow a bit more of the media stuff that iWeb has.
It's a bit irritating to have to click on a link to read anything beneath the fold (and yes, I have the same problem with newspaper and magazine stories that continue on page A23). Of course, I'm also already irritated by Blogger's placement of comments in a separate link (and by the way the whole reading from the bottom up thing disorients less-than-daily readers).But then, maybe I'm just cranky now in general because I've been spending the past few days of my ever-diminishing precious sabbatical time (see Rebecca's post on time, below) working, once again, in the service industry. And, moreover, in the service of an industry that I don't really understand, so that I get the double whammy of feeling pretty stupid and of knowing that I'm not doing anything to get any smarter in my chosen field...
