Blogger has had a lot of down time the last week. Google’s Blogger Buzz blog apologizes and explains they’re working on hardware & software issues.

An up and down platform may be okay for social blogging but cannot see how that can be tolerated by professionals. Heck, I freak out if we’re down for 90 seconds at a 1 AM Sunday morning.

Plus, 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.
