There are a few advantages to this blogging service.

See this video tutorial to quickly start your own blog in Blogger:

People like you and me who spend hours doing some work don’t like that other people pass by and copy the work they have done without proper attribution.

There is one way to make it clear that we don’t want to be snatched from our intelectual property and it is to mark  our work with a Creative Commons licence.

There are a couple of places where you can get information about how to make and get “CC” (Creative Commons) attribution.

Read the post “Marking: Best Practices for Marking Content with CC Licensing” on the Creative Commons blog to learn about marking your work and the post How to attribute a Creative Commons work by Molly Kleimann available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license, © 2008.
