In case you are wondering, "D" is my husband -- Dave Liu! As you've probably noticed, I don't update this blog often but I may post more as I've linked this to my Google+ account.

Blogger Pro is Free!

I just got an email from Evan Williams, co-founder of Pyra/Blogger. They are no longer providing Blogger Pro as a separate product since most of the features are being folded into regular (free) Blogger. Even so, my "subscription" to Pro will still be valid so I'll be able to use features that have not been ported over yet, like RSS (I use that!) and post-via-email (have yet to try it).

I guess that's one of the benefits of being purchased by a company with oodles of cash (Google). They can now afford to give away the service for free. This is bad news for TypePad, whose plans are expensive: one of the reasons why I did not subscribe even though I was offered a discount for being a beta tester.

Most exciting of all, Pyra/Google is giving me a free Blogger hoodie for being a Pro subscriber! I will wear it with pride.
