Blogger Outages – Telling It Like It Is

Legal blogging expert, Kevin O’Keefe had this to say about the recent Blogger outages:

I’d hate to be the law firm marketing professional telling the managing partner in a 500 lawyer firm with hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues that ‘our 5 blog sites have been down for the day – but we got them for free.’ Looks great to clients paying the firm $350 to $500 an hour.

Kevin certainly does tell it like it is – and quite often he’s right. If you are running a professional blog, there are better hosting options than Blogger, even your organization isn’t bringing in hundreds of millions in revenues.
