Google has overhauled the Blogger platform to enhance its editing and management capabilities and improve the metrics on offer so that blog owners can better measure performance.
Chief among the updates is the ability to create or edit posts from anywhere within the system. The content box has also been enlarged and simplified to improve the drafting and previewing of posts.
Google has implemented key data within the Blogger dashboard to provide insights into traffic figures, comment activity and followers.
Google Blogger product manager Chang Kim said in a blog post that the updates are based on user feedback and are just the first of many changes.
"We've rewritten the entire editing and management experience from scratch, so that it's faster and more efficient and easier for us to update and improve over time," he said.
"Throughout the design process, we conducted user interviews to help identify how to make Blogger even easier and more enjoyable to use. We also watched users trying our new interface and made many refinements based on their feedback."
Blogger users who want to use the new system can turn it on over the next few days and receive instructions on how to make the most of the improvements.
The updates follow Google's announcement of offline functionality for Gmail, Docs and Calendar to help mobile workers access important information in locations with no internet access.
