Blogger celebrates its 10th Birthday

To celebrate its 10th birthday, Blogger has introduced some really useful new features.  The first one of note is the "Read more" link.  Back in December '08, we blogged about how it was possible to add the 'Read more ...' link by changing the HTML code in the template.  This was a bit messy and problematic. Blogger now has a build in feature that easily allows you to insert the Read more link anywhere within the article.  Details of how to set it up can be found here.

The other new features include:
# Improved Raw HTML
# Add your location to your posts with geotagging
# Posts are now timestamped
# Vertical resizing
# Easy link editing in Compose mode
# Full Safari 3 support on both Windows and Macintosh
# New Preview dialog
# Placeholder image for tags
# New toolbar

More details of the new features can be found here.
