Google has bought Pyra — the makers of Blogger. Most of you probably know this already or don’t care, but posting here anyway in case you haven’t seen it and need to know about it.

I used to use Blogger, but it wasn’t very Mac friendly (some features didn’t work) and the server was down a lot. People seemed to be happier with Movable Type and I certainly have been blogging a lot more since I switched. The MT interface seems more natural to me for some reason — faster, smother, and maybe a little slicker. I still use Blogger for other things, though, so it will be interesting to see where Google takes it.
