Blogger is turning 10

A few months ago we mentioned that Blogger was turning 10 years old later this year. That day is almost upon us just six days away in fact and we’ve been hard at work trying to think about what we could give you to celebrate.

Wait, what? What we could give you? That’s right. This is our birthday but we’re celebrating your contributions over the years. Over the past decade, millions of people around the world have made Blogger what it is today: a vibrant community of real people telling their stories. When we asked you to tell us your Blogger story, you responded: you connected with far away family, shared your art, grew up, demonstrated your expertise in an emerging area of research, overcome childhood adversity, met authors and poets you admire, coped with an illness, became a parent, learned a new culture, struggled with your parents’ divorce, placed digital messages in virtual bottles, helped people fix their cell phones, wrote a novel. You even made the inaugural blogging team at school, and while there you’re working on your PhD on consumer trends towards blogs. There are millions of such stories and they grow by the day.

As we turn ten, we wanted to give you some presents to commemorate this milestone and thank you for letting us be part of your story. Over the next several weeks we will be releasing a number of new features on Blogger. Some presents are because you asked for them this spring. Other presents are because they meant a lot to us. And some are because our friends (both inside and outside of Google) wanted to chip in and give you something. In short, it’s a lot like a real birthday: you won’t necessarily want or need every present that you get, but keep in mind: it’s the thought that counts!

We’re excited to share this milestone with you. Stay tuned, the next several weeks will be a lot of fun!
