Two things have let me down here at Blogspot.
1) It's not very community-orientated. I like people. I like visiting blogs (and not just a random choice when one clicks on 'next). I like people visiting my blog. I find Blogspot to be very difficult to navigate to see other blogs and broaden my horizons. I won't even go into the fact that not a soul reads blogs in here. Few blogs I visited through the ubiquitous 'next' button at the top right had any number of commentors.
2) The new Blogspot has me disgusted. It is well known that I live in Brazil, but I am English! I want to manage my blog in my language... not the language that their cookies decide I should be using. Sure, I can switch my language preference to English, but when visiting friends' blogs, I get to face a comments page in Portuguese. I don't like the new Blogspot. I didn't choose it. I was finally forced to accept it or not access my blog. They want it that way, they can have it that way.
My blog is now at Yahoo 360°. The community spirit is wonderful and its so easy to browse and find new friends. There are a number of ways for me to show my photography and tools that allow so much flexibility with page design and blog post setup.
